Spring wildflowers in the Granite belt

And now it is spring, late September as I write. By all accounts it has been a bumper season for wildflowers. They appear to have peaked, however with good rain predicted for this week we could well see a second burst. I have been fortunate to go out on some field trips with the Wildflower Consortium, and spotted some rare species, notably some Boronias and the extremely rare Bertya recurvata.
