Lake Leschenaultia

The last meeting of the Bushwalkers Club for 2017 took us to Lake Leschenaultia, an hour's drive from Perth. From now on it's too hot for bushwalking. Even today was too hot, reaching 30 degrees, so I just did the 3 kms round the lake, while the others went on a longer route and met up for lunch at the car park. It is a popular spot for family picnics and the kids can swim in the lake or go out in a canoe.

Fringe lilies: my favourite of all the wildflowers. I have never seen them so good!
