The Grevilleas are really bursting open now. What's amazing is how infinitely asymmetrical they are.

Above are some of those I've planted from the many available cultivars. . But there is a local indigenous Grevillea here, Grevillea arenaria. It's not particularly inspiring and easily passed by on the track as just another spreading rambling almost drab shrub. There's a few way way down the bush track. I always stop and say hello. And on close inspection its flowers are just as interesting, and considerably more subtle, than the more showy ones.

Here's Fafner again, keeping watch, and that's the (rather plain) Grevillea arenaria on the right, as you see it.
