A sandy rise

After checking out Leinster (it's a very neat and treed mining town similar to Leigh Creek in SA) we turned west towards Geraldton. We happened to be there when there was a change of shift and saw lots of miners congregating to board the buses that ferried them out to the mines.

At one delightful spot on the way there was sandy rise with spinifex and beautiful eucalypts and discovered budgies in the trees.

And I was particularly delighted to find a group of small and hardy plants with the beautiful red flowers right on the ground. It would be interesting to know what the pollinating agent is. And there was also a suite of other flowering plants that I hadn't seen growing elsewhere on our travels.
