Flowers from Kings Park : Winter

I was frustated since June, because I found only few plants with exciting flowers around me. I mentioned earlier that July is not a flower friendly month. So I tried with Kings Park, though it is winter, but I found many flowers. It seems that those flowers dont care about winter. Hats off for those fighters. Here are few of them.
