Flowers from Blue Mountains, Australia (3)

May 1, 2011

This beautiful flower was very common here in this part of Australia, a kind of lily I think…. Here in the light from the sunset in Katoomba.

Maybe Lynn Wiles –  or other readers know the name?

    I think you are right according to the name…
    A nice shot. All colors in Australia is so strong, this lily is a good example.

      I found them often in this area, and stopped and admired them just as often….

    It’s very pretty, whatever it is. I like the black background, too.

    I just lucked out with the kangaroo paw, but can’t help with this or the one below. I think Mrs. UHDD is right.

    Gorgeous picture and flower, orange is my favourite colour, as well as green. I remember seeing this flower growing wild in Madagascar. It would embellish any bouquet you would pick.
