This year has seen a bumper wildflower season. I think it must be the rainy winter that we've had that has lead to the wildflower explosion in Central Australia. Beyond our back fence and even in our yard (though there would have been more had I not been so militant about getting rid of 'weeds') there are wildflowers everywhere. On an average year there are normally a few along the river, but not everywhere else. It has been wonderful to see. I also think that we are seeing more due to the amazing efforts of the community landcare groups that have worked to get rid of the buffel grass and saltbush in the swamp and the buffel grass around Spencer Hill.

Below are a few more photos of the wonderful wildflowers that have appeared this year.
