Comment: Great Victoria Desert Wildflowers - August 2014

Thanks very much Stephen I can now fill in the blanks on naming some of my plant photos.

The picture of the acacia - Red Mulga, or Mini Ritchie is one of my favourite trees of the desert regions and always amazes me how it survives.

It's amazing the difference a month made between your trip and ours.

thanks again

Dunc.

Hi Dunc

It took many hours of trying to identify the plants, so hopefully the ones that you are missing are in my lot.

The the Red Mulga is a great tree, and I love that bark structure.

At one stage when talking with Robin at Maralinga, the flowers were starting to bloom early, and I was hoping that we were not leaving our trip too late.

The general thought from everone on the trip, was the unreal of Sturt's Desert Pea that were out in flower across the whole desert. They lined the road between Kite and One Tree test site and Robin was saying that this has been the first time he has seen them in flower out on the Range.

Glad you enjoyed what we encountered.



Cheers
