Mystery Flower

No time for photos today because I have been out with friends for our regular girlie lunch. This is our last lunch before Christmas and it has been a beautiful day. Lovely lunch and lovely company on a warm Australian summers day, who could ask for more.

I took this photo last Thursday in bushland while out with our walking group. I have no idea what variety of flower this is but it looked so pretty.
Great capture of this pretty flower.

Such an unusual flower. I like how the flower heads curl in, almost protecting the centre.

A beautiful flower. Such a vibrant purple. Hope you had a good lunch.

Wow I love that flower! The colour & sort of abandonment of the petals going this way & that! Great to find out its name, a Southern Hemisphere flower as I've never heard of it!

Isn't this wonderful and such a beautiful colour ! I wonder what it is !!

I just love 365, there is always somebody who will be able to identify things for me, whatever it is. Thanks to Peter and Wylie for identifying this flower as a Melaleuca Thymifolia, commonly known as a thyme honey myrtle. Such a pretty name.

Yes Catherine I had a lovely lunch. Always good to catch up with friends.
