Early morning visitors

Early morning visitors, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

Another highlight from my 2005 trip around Australia on the Greyhound buses was my stay at Western Flora caravan park. It was great to meet up again with Alan and Lorraine Tinker and to find that Alan was still taking the early evening walk around the park, explaining all the interesting things that happen between the flowers,insects and birds, the reason things happen. Nothing is haphazard, every thing has a meaning, and having it explained opens your eyes to the world of flowers around you. I was also very pleased that Lorraine was still preparing the excellent home cooked dinner.

If you are interested in the wild flowers of Western Australia this is a place you should put on the top of your list to visit. There are 60 acres of property to explore and the display of flowers is outstanding. We stayed 4 very enjoyable days immersed in the flowers.

  1. Hi Vanessa and Kids, Jack thought you would all enjoy the books.


  2. Hi Sandra, this particular kangaroo was quite tame as she had been rescued with a broken hind leg. In fact I think she was used to posing for tourists…

    ps The kangaroos are adorable! They look so sweet…I don’t know if they are as sweet as they look. Regards Sandra
