Geewillinkinwinkings – So Many Flowers, So Little Time!

There has been an enormous variety of flowers pop up this Spring in our patch of the Perth Hills in Western Australia.  I’ve been hastily photographing, identifying, sketching and painting just a few in between life happening in case they don’t reappear again next year.  This is one that I haven’t been able to identify so if anyone can help I’d appreciate it, as I don’t feel able to title another painting ‘Wild One’!

Blue What?

Blue What?

They are a gorgeous bright blue – six petals (3 a little larger than the 3 in between them, so maybe 3 petals and 3 sepals).  There are 3 yellow anthers and the stigma is bluish. The stems are 30 – 40 cms long.

It may of course by an introduced species /weed 🙁
