Wildflowers in the Legume (Pea) family

geraldton-wa-1060_0The Sturt’s Desert Pea is the most famous Australian member of this family, and rightly so; we have a separate Post for that plant..  But there are many other beautful wildflowers in the family.  Some are tiny – with flowers around 1cm long, while the largest shown in this gallery belong to the Native Bird Plant, with its unusual green flowers.  Some of the photos are a little out of focus, because at the time I didn’t have a camera with a macro (close-up) lens.
