Friday Photos 28 Sep 07

Sturt's Desert Pea (Link Here)

As a change this week I'm posting some photos from our son and his partner .
The whole area around where they live in the north of SA
is just red with lots of these beautiful flowers.

He was intrigued by this plain red flower at the rear of this cluster.

He has also tried to get a photo of a very rare albino flower (pure white) closer to his town but the locals have been out digging them up and taking them home with the highly unlikely view that they will transplant.
Being a desert plant it has a very long tap root and rarely transplants well at all exclaim
So these people are just killing these rare plants off.

Our son is not amused!! evil
All he wanted to do was take some photos to send his mum. rolleyes

Thanks for the photos!
