On the hillside; looking out over the Pacfic Ocean.  Several coal ships can be seen in the distance, as they queue, waiting for entry to port at Newcastle Harbour.

I have never seen these flowers. They are gorgeous and your photos do them justice.
Nice view from the top of the hill.

Your photos are gorgeous Carole, do you use a digital software to do stuff with them? Unfortunately Canberra doesn't have too many beautiful places so I can go photograph and play with them and add textures etc to put the photography lol. Will have to go download some free images online to play with
Have a happy day, 29C in Canberra to day

In your first photo I can see the texture of the petals, it does remind me of a soft flannel. They are so beautiful, great photos.
