    Rattlepod – the seed pods must make some kind of noise when dry? Beautiful photos of this unusual flower.

    I still love those colors of earth and sky, even cloudy skies!

      Hi Lavinia, yes, apparently they do rattle in the pod but I haven’t seen them in the dry.

    Looks different to the Cunninghams Birdflowers I’ve seen up in the Kimberley. Same flowers, but those I’ve seen have less flowers in amongst foliage. Obviously related though. Love discovering the different outback flora.

      Yes, I’m amazed at how many different varieties of flowers there are. Of the rattlepods in my book, there are 4 different types but I’m sure this isn’t a comprehensive listing.
