This page will bring together a range of different items and links that I hope you find useful. For example, two of the finest places on Earth for enjoying spring flowers are in Australia. I’ve put together two pdfs for identifying some of the commoner wildflowers that you might see in these colourful Edens.

The first location is the coastal heath and dry sclerophyll forest in and around Sydney and the Central Coast – see pdf flower guide below.

The second location is the remarkable heath that hugs the coast of Western Australia from Perth up to Shark Bay, taking in very special areas such as Lesueur and Kalbarri National Parks. The spring and early summer floral displays here are astonishing. See pdf flower guide below.

These are wonderful places for photography, even if all you have is your phone camera. Images of flowers from here and further afield are available for e-commerce download at
