Spring flowers November 2012

 With all the rain we've had over the past two years, the plant that has grown the most (in terms of spreading into beds in all kinds of places) is the violet. Mostly they are very small, but this is a larger plant near the house. (viola hederacea).
 The milkmaids are also out now (burchardia umbellata) and if it gets hot and dry, no doubt we'll see more orchids and lilies.
Along the north side the bossiaea has been out, but also now these common rice-flowers (pimelea linifolia). Yes, I'm adding the botanical names for a change!
