AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Unknown Autumn Flower

I have no idea what this Autumn flower may be.
All I know is I rather like it, in spite of the little bugs that seem to be busy wandering the petals!
This flower was photographed in a garden at Moorabbin, an inner suburb of Melbourne.

bold autumn flower
reaching for mellow sun's warmth
with arms open wide

I would think a type of Hibiscus.

It's lovely...I wouldn't have thought those were bugs if you hadn't said so.

The centre sure looks like a hibiscus, but I haven't seen one with such narrow petals...
I love it, though, whatever it is!!!

Beautiful. I also think it's a hibiscus. I've seen it here at the Botanic Garden.

more people then me was thinking hibiscus. Might be one of them. Did you notice the nice shadow on the low petal?
