    I can’t wait to get to WA in my travels (one day!) to see some of your amazing and unique plant species like this one. In March we were in SA at Port Augusta and I photographed a Sturt’s Desert Pea (in my portfolio) and got a taste of some of the plant life that we in Tasmania, just never get to see. Great to see you have so many wonderful ones in your portfolio.

  • Spring is the best time – so much to see, so little time. If you ever get over here, let me know and if you are in my area, I can show you some wildflowers spots :)
