In a West Australian Garden

I’ve  visited Perth before and seen West Australian wildflowers in their splendour at the Mullewa show one spring where they were displayed in separate vases, but nothing compares with the most vibrant array of these unique plants in all their natural and ancient glory at Perth’s Kings Park. The day was stunning, warm enough, but not too hot to join in with a throng of visitors many from overseas, who like me, were smiling in return at the colourful profusion of flora in Spring. I heard that tune “Happy” in my head and was drawn to the different garden displays based on the vast and very different regions of the state which takes up half of the country.

Geraldton Wax, Wreath Flower, Blue Leschenaultia, Catspaw,Antiseptic bush, Balga blackboy,  I have sustained a love affair  with these forces of nature since I learnt about their powerful yet gentle healing properties over 15 years ago. Just being  in their presence is enough to infuse my spirit with joy.

In my recent house sit to the North of Perth, I have been fortunate to enjoy flowers and plants such as the West Australian Bottlebrush, fairy fan flower, and many more of these magnificent species of flora only found in the West. Both in the wild, on display or in a backyard garden, these special plants bring healing and peace to we mortals
