Peak time for Leschenaultia biloba. This species is the one most commonly referred to as ‘Leschenaultia’ and it abounds in the Perth Hills. The iconic wreath flower, which I’ve recently posted about, is Leschenaultia macrantha.

Moving on from the forested escarpment into the Wheatbelt and a stop at the Corrigin Dog Cemetery Barking at heaven's door: iconic dog cemetery looks for new land to expand).

Another of those places I’ve driven past many times when working, but never stopped at.

Next morning, a brief look around in a nature reserve on the edge of Narrogin.

Banksia nobilis, commonly known as golden dryandra.

Plenty of these orchids.

Then on to Dryandra Woodland. The reserve has a main loop road but is laced with an extensive network of drive trails.

It was on one of these minor trails that I achieved the rare feat of sighting a numbat. It was moving too fast to photograph but I had a clear view of it as it ran across the open ground under the wandoo trees in front of me. Mission accomplished!

Numbats were once distributed across Australia but are now restricted to two reserves in WA (The Numbat — Project Numbat).

Next day. Wednesday. PJM’s day off and a glorious spring day. Off we go to the quaint old timber-milling town of Jarrahdale.

The Millbrook winery is just out of town. Not open on Tuesday-Wednesday but the grounds are accessible. Pretty spot and particularly attractive on a sunny day in early spring.
