Bush-peas, Parrot-peas and the like

I mentioned in the last blog that the peas were flowering the Brisbane Ranges at the moment. OK, I found them, I photographed them .... then I tried to identify them. Oh dear. The Fabaceae family is so confusing.

These are some I found. I think they are, from top to bottom, Narrow-leaf Bitter-pea Daviesia leptophylla; Leafless Globe-pea Sphaerolobium minus; Golden Bush-pea Pultenaea gunnii; Dwarf Bush-pea Pultenaea humilis; Parrot-pea Dillwynia sp. I'm happy to be corrected.

G'day Boobook,
You'll get no 'pea corrections' from me. I have numerous pics of some beautiful peas but can hardly ID one of them - just enjoy them, I say.
