As per my previous post about this festival held every year in September, the last day was today, so I called two friends and the three of us went to Kings Park. We had a wonderful day, the park was full of school kids on a day out, the wildflowers were beautiful, the colours amazing, the birds, the ducks and ducklings, the soft green grass, ...all added up to 70 photos in a couple of hours!!
Western Australia is the state with the greatest percentage of wildflowers in Australia, with over 12,000 species, 60% of which are not found anywhere else in the world!
