To tie in with the Dereel and Surrounds Spring Festival, happening on Saturday 10th October, I thought I would post a gallery of beautiful yellow Spring wildflowers growing in and around Dereel. I’ve started with the Spring Festival logo, which features Guinea Flowers.
This is just a start. There are so many yellow wild flowers blossoming at the moment. So if you can add to the list, take a photograph and send it to us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Enjoy the photographs.
The Spring Festival logo features the Erect Guinea Flower
While a number of different species of Guinea Flower grow locally, the Erect Guinea Flower is one of the most common forms.
This flower is the emblem of the Ballarat Field Naturalists.
This photo was taken early in September, and most of the flowers have finished now.
The flowers of this pea plant are smaller and darker than the Grey Parrot-pea.
The botanical name of this flower refers to the sharp, distinctive angles on the edge of the leaves.
On warm days, the Yellow Star flowers seem to pup up everywhere!

Blackwood wattle flowers are a pale yellow, fading to cream.
