More from the ANBG

We had another nice walk through the Australian National Botanic Gardens today, together with friends.

You may remember the recent botany picture, Azolla pinnata. This is the second native species of this interesting genus, Azolla filiculoides.

Azolla filiculoides differs from A. pinnata in the less regular branching pattern and in its unbranched roots. Personally, I find A. pinnata more attractive.

Many Banksias are just starting to flower. This is Banksia aemula (Proteaceae).

Lambertia formosa, also of the Proteaceae, a shrub found in coastal heath of New South Wales.

I just realized that this is my hundredth blog post. Hooray!
