Flower of the Day – September 19, 2017 – Melaleuca Megacephala

Megacephala literally means ‘Big Head’ and this drought tolerant Australian native bush has comparatively large flowers – around 5-6 cms (2-3 inches) across – for flowers that can lose a lot of water/nectar the larger they get.

There are two different types of flowers in the photo but i am unsure of the whitish one’s name.

Cee’s Flower of the Day – September 19, 2017 – Dahlia




  1. I just downloaded a new app for my phone that identifies flowers. It is called Picture This, for Android it’s the free version and does pretty good. I am finally figuring out some of those flowers I didn’t know what they were before. There’s a paid version of this app or similar that is supposed to be better. Just submit a pic of the flower and voila! identified!

    • Wow! I might have to check it out. Thank you. 🙂

      But i do like the feeling of success i get when i’ve trawled through a million google pics and pages to find the right name! 😉

      I have way too much time on my hands – apparently 😉



        • I have not yet succumbed to the smartphone/app temptation – i fear it might suck me down an intellectual wormhole i could not escape from 😉

          And it is nice to find someone i can have an intelligent conversation with on-line – a rare pleasure! 🙂




        • thanks… I rely on my smartphone apps to keep me from getting lost when I travel, translate when I want to communicate, when I cant remember the language in strange lands, and now to identify flowers. I seldom use it to call anyone. My mini computer instead. I do enjoy “talking” to you too.


  2. I have to admit – it would be a lot easier doing those things on a phone than a computer. I’d need a very big phone though – or better glasses! 😉
