Is that called chocolate lily because of the scent Fermi?
Hi Gail,
apparently so, though I couldn't smell anything much at the time!

There was also this daisy which used to be a helichrysum but is now Coronidium scorpioides!

And there were still a few "Milkmaids", Burchardia umbellata, though they usually are earlier flowering,

Stopping on the way home from Bendigo earlier in the week we found some stunning wildflowers:
Firstly Cheiranthera linearis, Finger Flower, named for the appearance of the stamens

Xerochrysum viscosum, the Sticky Everlasting, was profuse this year though you can see why it's sometimes hard to find seed!
