Default Peaflowers

We seem to have an abundance of tiny native wildflowers that are 'peaflower' in shape. Here are a few.

# 1 One of several commonly called 'Egg & Bacon' plants [Pultenaea sp: Fabaceae]


# 2 Glycine [Glycinesp: Fabaceae]


# 3 Creeping hovea [Hovea longifolia]


# 4 Creeping hovea pink form


# 5 False sarsparilla [Hardenbergia violaca]


# 6 haven't been able to identify this one


All these little flowers are 1 cm or less across and taken with my MCON-40 macro lens.

Cheers

Bernice

Beautiful series Bernice. I particularly love the hardenbergias, especially #5 with the drops of water.

Thank you very much jj, banksy & loren. They certainly are bright little gems which gleam out at you as you walk along. These were all taken at various National Parks we have been exploring.

Cheers

Bernice
