Wildflowers and weeding with a view !
There were still lots of wildflowers to be spotted on my regular Sunday walk around the property again yesterday.
Here are some examples:
Blue Pimpernel. Its pretty but classed as a weed !
I think its a Milkmaids, not common on Kangaroo island.
Also flowering now are the weeds but at least the flowers make them easier to spot. Have been weeding every year but it takes time to eradicate them completely. I have applied for a grant to help with costs.One bonus is that I get to enjoy a view here and there!
These prickly little beasts are Slender Thistles, introduced when the property ran sheep.
The other major prickly weed is a Glaucous Star Thistle which makes itself obvious by growing a tall stem !
