An indigenous species of wattle to our area acacia acinacia  
 This is an eremophila from Eyre Peninsular in S.A.
The bees love this  postanthera or aussie mint bush

This is a self sown Kennidia a climbing twining vine similar to Kennidia Nigricans which grew in our garden 40 years ago  
 This clematis is native to the Jarrah forests of W.A. The tall vine has been in our garden for more than 35 years, its flowers being larger than the local species.
