SUM­MER has ended, how­ever there are still beau­ti­ful blooms to be sighted in our lo­cal bush­land. I took this im­age re­cently while cy­cling around Lake Joon­dalup. The beau­ti­ful pur­ple fringed lily (thysan­otus) along with a pretty yel­low au­tumn lily (tri­co­ryne) are flow­er­ing pro­fusely. The mag­nif­i­cent or­ange and white blooms of the acorn banksia (banksia pri­onotes) are also in pro­fu­sion, at­tract­ing many in­sects and up to seven dif­fer­ent species of hon­eyeater.
