Once In A Blue Moon – Inktober 2020 Day 22

Once in a blue moon
Someone like you comes along
Once in a blue moon
Something good comes along

– Van Morrison

On our daily walk on Day 22, in the bush reserve behind our back garden, I spotted a delightful Purple Lily (Patersonia Occidentalis). Purple Lilies are wildflowers of SW Western Australia. They have 3 purple petals, 3 smaller inner petals, 3 yellow stamens around the longer style, a flattened white stigma and slender strap like leaves.
