    Celeste, this is just a vision… the clarity and color is second to none and, of course, the background bokeh is subtle and elegant.

    Such fitting composition and title for this lovely… cascade…

    Gorgeous colour and delicate little flower – love it – Shirley

  • Thank you, Shirley! I had never seen these flowers before until I came upon an almost hidden planting at my local botanical garden. This is an Australian native, another one we get to thank you for. :)

    Thank you for the info Celeste, I feel I have seen it before, perhaps at the nursery Garden… -Shirley

  • Could be at your nursery, and I’m sure I’ve seen other photos here on RB. It’s Hardenbergia violacea. The common name they had on the tag was “Purple Coral Pea.” I also found it on ABC’s Gardening Australia site.
