Beautiful Blooms at Solomon Gully

This post is a little late arriving as it was back on the Sunday the 16th of October that the Bendigo Family Nature Club visited the wild flowers of Salomon Gully.  Accompanied by the spring weather of sudden showers, then a quick ray of sunshine and a gust of wind we headed up the gully.

Hosted by the Bendigo Field Naturalists we learnt about local wild flowers showing off this time of year.
Rodd and Jan of the BFN put together Question Sheets and fantastic ID sheets to help us all spot the flowers.

My favourite was the chocolate lilly - so shy but delicious to smell!

Other flowers named like food included egg and bacon!

This flower is called Lady Fingers - it is a grevillea 

These are everlasting flowers

We also spotted and enjoyed flowering grasses - like this spear grass

Join us next time to meet this little cutie

November we are visiting some very special cute creatures, don’t miss out on this opportunity to befriend our local wildlife with your children. Places are limited. Made possible by the wonderful people of the Bendigo Field Naturalists and the City of Greater Bendigo.  Fun and free in our local bush!
