Had I stumbled across this plant before the 'Autumn Colours' theme I possibly would have used this as my offering.

This plant grows prolifically in many areas of forest around the city, this particular one is a hybrid variety bred for garden use. After consulting a couple of my wild flower books I can say that it is definitely a member of the pea family and most likely to be Daviesa incrassata. The common name I used as a child in Western Australia was egg and bacon plant.

To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these ar ~ John Burroughs

Wonderfully bright colors captured, and good details. It looks so 'dense.' One thing - no obvious focal point (for me.) But still nice to look at! And thanks for the notes.

David, Hi:

Beautiful composition. I so look forward to your spring and summer giving us color during our winter. Wonderfully done with excellent colors and detail, my friend.

Yes, you are enjoying spring, while we have lots of dark and rainy days here.
Good to see sun and warm colours. I got the feeling that we might be calling this plant "brem", but I like the egg and bacon name better.

Thanks for sharing this, I don't think I've ever seen this before. The color and detail are excellent.
