Some Native Floral Eye Candy

My apologies for taking my time in posting again but I have a valid excuse. I spent most of the weekend away at a local retreat with some young people, which was awesome but left me a tad fatigued. I’ve since developed a nasty head cold and haven’t been feeling the best so today I thought I would just share some of the eye candy that surrounded our lodgings.

The house we retreated to was on a 64 acre block of virgin forest overlooking the ocean with views everywhere. While the owners had stripped some of the bush for their own garden it was the native flora that really exploded if you took the time to look.

I’m unsure as to the names of most of these plants so if you see any you recognise then by all means feel free to identify them for me. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Additionally, we participates in various other affiliate programs, and we sometimes get a commission through purchases made through our links.
