Spring Wildflowers

wildflowers

Spring is such a great time of the year to get out into the bush and explore, especially with the range of bright coloured wildflowers in bloom at the moment. The Aussie bush is also a great place to get some inspiration for your own garden.

Native wildflowers not only survive without additional watering, but they also create a wonderful habitat for native birdlife so your ears can enjoy their song, while your eyes take in the beautiful colours.

Here are some wildflowers that are in bloom at the moment in Victoria’s North East. These shots taken around Mt Beauty in the Kiewa Valley.
