Banksia Spinulosa

The word prompt for Sheryls Daily Word Prompt April 10: Flower

I was chatting on a post about gardens and someone asked what was  a certain flower. As it was an Australian flower, of course I knew it was a Banksia spinulosa. It’s common name is Hairpin Banksia. Last week I actually photographed a flower. Funny how worlds come together isn’t it.

Well, here is the flower of a Banksia spinulosa
