It was a surprise to see so many plants flowering in the Flinders Ranges. Mostly it was the perennials not the annuals that were in bloom - the small shrubs. You don't see the flowers when you're driving the roads admiring the geology and beautiful landscapes. It's only when you walk that you see the colour of the flowers. The wildflowers must be very beautiful in spring, but there are so many Pattersons Curse plants that the hills will be beautifully purple with the weed.
