Flowering in Iphithi

Spring rains have finally arrived, and wildflowers are celebrating! Water loving ferns and iconic Arum lilies are revelling in the moist earth along wetland edges, with soft blue and mauve Sticky-leaved Monopsis, Monopsis stellaroides, softening the sword-like leaves of reeds and rushes. On grassy banks, a few wildflowers have popped their heads above the grass fronds. Though the grasses are in need of fire to burn off dead thatches and revitalise the flowering forbs, there are a few out on display for us.
