Here's a confession: When I first moved to Australia, I thought the native flowers here were a bit 'meh'. They are (mostly) spindly, spiky, dry and wouldn't look out of place in a sci-fi movie. But over the years, I've learnt to appreciate their unique beauty. They are brightly coloured and tough - resilient to the harsh Australian sun and drought. And mostly, I love how to their nectar provide food for so many of our native birds and animals.

Floral Friday is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along next time, please email me for next month's theme.
