Party - Su Li, Martin, Albert, Col, Mark, Disco Stu, Rik, Wendy, Dave

It was Su Li's birthday - and she organised a trip down to Blue Gum Forest via Lockleys Pylon. The wildflowers on the walk were particularly striking.

Thanks to Roger Lembit for help with the flower identification.

Above - an unusual white Fringe Lily (Thysanotus tuberosus). The next day, on the way out - we went looking for the white flowers again - without succes. There were lots (hundreds) of purple fringe lilies around in the nearby heath (see later photos). The flowers only last one day.
