Grevillea Update




Some of you may remember this grevillea photo below which I shared exactly two weeks ago.
The photo above was taken this afternoon, of the same lonely flower, gradually stretching to full bloom. 
Another Australian native which comes to full blossom slowly and lasts a considerable time.




The shapes and colours are amazing.The black and white below really highlights the unusual structure of the grevillea. This is taken from the stem, looking down the flower towards the tightly budded tip.




I will try to take more photos as it continues to mature.


Sharing at Black and White Wednesday, Better in Bulk and Photo Story Friday.
