Photo challenge- Yellow…

This holiday season, we’re throwing you a photo challenge color curveball. Many of us around the world are ensconced in the holiday season. You may be surrounded with blue and silver if you’re celebrating Hanukkah; black, red, and green, if you’re celebrating Kwanzaa; or festooned with reds and greens if Christmas is coming to your house. With this week’s challenge, show us what yellow means to you. Find out more here: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/yellow/


So word press has got a lot of challenges going, and this weeks Colour is “Yellow” so when I saw this flower I thought I would join in.

Personally I do not like Native Australian trees, ok, so complain I am un Australian I don’t care! It’s not a pretty flower.. It has no perfume BUT it does attract the pretty nectar eating birds so it’s all good, I just don’ t want to grow one..

Some type of Banksia, a native Australian flower

Some type of Banksia, a native Australian flower

So I went to “Google” it and see if I could find out the name… Here’s what I discovered..

 Wallum Banksia- This plant is similar to the better known Banksia serrata . It rarely exceeds 3 m high, is more bushy in habit and is more tolerant of poorly drained soils. It was introduced into cultivation in England in 1788 and was among the first banksias to be grown there

ho-hum boring, but hey it’s YELLOW!!
