seen

I didn't even notice the little bug on the trunk in that first one until I saw it on the monitor :]
observant much ??
Triffids cunningly disguised as lichen on a dead branch

and this last one is the tiny Twining Fringe-Lily [thysanotus patersonii] growing around a small eucalyptus plantlet.
Those flowers are about the size of your smallest fingernail.

It's fascinating how plants adapt to extreme conditions. Small but beautiful.

OMG! Twining Fringe-Lily [thysanotus patersonii] incorporates the names of both my children - Lily and Paterson... I never thought I'd see that! Now to see if it would survive in Canberra... and if my local native plant dealer can get one...
