A Flower a Week : #4 Sturt’s Desert Pea…

Sturt's Desert Pea

Sturt’s Desert Pea

This week I would like to introduce you to a strange-looking native Australian plant. Sturt’s desert pea (Swainsona Formosa) is one of Australia’s best known wildflowers.  Named after the early explorer, Charles Sturt, it is the floral emblem for South Australia. They are annuals and it is an exciting and thrilling experience to come across large areas of them setting the arid desert areas alight with their brilliant red flowers.

A flower a week…

A new challenge has popped up and it is close to my heart. Nalinki on “Angles and views” has decided to make a weekly series called: Flowers over flowers, it will be posted every Tuesday. The idea is to bring some more colorful pics of nature into our blogosphere.

I know today is Thursday, but I noticed this new series over on Jude’s “Earth laughs in flowers” (pop over to see the beautiful flower portrait she has contributed.)

So this is my flower of the week.

Not much flowering in my garden at the moment, but this Grevillia flowers all year and I can always rely on a few to brighten the garden up.
