We've just come back from a short break in Dongara - about 350 kms north of Perth. Although it's a bit late for wildflowers we saw some beautiful ones.
Above & below: masses of gorgeous Verticordias about an hours drive from Perth. I've never seen as many as this in one place - we usually go at a different time of year.
The main purpose of the trip was to see an exhibition in Geraldton: Momentum - 18th Tamworth fibre textile biennial which is an eastern states exhibition that is not coming to Perth. Well worth seeing if you get the chance. Christine Atkins is one of the WA artists included.

Above: some banksias - saw many of these along the road.
Below: old jetty at Dongara with cray (lobster) boats in the background.
