King's Park Wildflower walk

What a feast of flowers and plants it was. Our guide was well prepared with a file which she used to explain or expand on information. Her shoulder bag contained a plastic box divided into segments and containing an array of samples which she produced to illustrate what she was explaining. Western Australia is unique. It has half of Australia’s 25 000 plant species and most of those are found nowhere else on earth. Isn’t that amazing??? We saw the boab trees and heard the story of the moving of the main one from the Pilbara on a truck. From Two Rivers Lookout we viewed the beautiful city of Perth in all its glory as it was a fabulous sunny day! Through the verticordia garden, the boronia garden, through the Tuart Forrest and 3 over the Elevated Walkway and Glass Bridge, on through the Karri, past the Water Garden where we saw a family of ducks and ducklings just learning to swim, past the Pioneer Women’s Memorial, through the Banksia Garden and finally the Conservation Garden.
