Australia's oldest hospital: Sydney Hospital in Macquarie Street. Most of the building is in the architectural style called 'Victorian free classical'. The charming late nineteenth century fountain, built in England as a memorial to thespian and theatre entrepreneur Robert Brough, features Australian Brolgas and black swans. It stands in front of the Gothic revival style Nightingale Wing of the hospital that houses a nursing museum and archives. (Information from The Dictionary of Sydney).
The Sydney spring bush flower caravan trundles onwards (you can catch up with part 1 and part 2 here)! So, I have found yet another five petalled flower and I have decided it is a mauve coloured small crowea. Meanwhile, the charming white mini floral display below that is absolutely everywhere in some parks at the moment. It is very pretty and seems to be concentrated mostly along paths. It looks a bit like a light scattering of snow and upon careful investigation, I have decided it is a heath myrtle. Finally, this blossoming bush is actually in the last hurrahs of flowering (it was much more active during winter/ autumn) and I am happy to say that it is without a shadow of a doubt a peach blossom tea tree.
This post follows on from my previous post the other day on Sydney bush flowers which seem to be taking full advantage of the lovely spring weather at the moment. I have found yet another variety of boronia - this time with an arrangement of fern like leaves which I think is a Pinnate Boronia.
Below, are some other native delights (clockwise from top left): Could not find the name of this tiny blue/ purple beauty, short purple flag wild iris, red spider flower, white spider flowers and pink swamp heath.
