I actually took this photo of the botanically named Swainsona formosa FABACEAE at the Black Mountain Botanic Gardens in Canberra on my last road trip, but then realised it’s also one of the specialist wildflower plants grown by our large local Wholesale Native Plant Nursery in Sandy Point.
There is usually an open garden day run in Foster township each year. Leongatha, Meeniyan, Koonwarra, Yarram, Port Albert and Fish Creek have also been known to have them.
As super macro photography is one of my specialties I wanted to show what’s possible with just a hand held point and shoot Canon S5 IS camera. The centre of this red flower is clear and bright and has been sharpened slightly in photo editing software to clarify it even more.
The native flora growing in coastal areas of South Gippsland, Australia, is something quite special. This one was found at Cape Liptrap Coastal Park where the winds are high and the rain storms can be vicious.
You’ll see more great photographs of Cape Liptrap Coastal Park along with some information about the area and the lighthouse that towers over the rugged landscape.
These brightly coloured succulents are flowering in various places along the beach at Sandy Point.

If you love flowers as much as I do, you will really appreciate taking a look at some beautiful ‘Rainbow Flower Collages’ over at http://south-gippsland.biz/category/rainbow-flowers/.
They’ve been created and produced into luxury sized postcards and special collectors edition of ready-to-frame prints.
I wonder what you think…? Come back and let me know!
