Billy Buttons surrounded

There's really been some development around Sandra's Pycnosurus globulosus - billy buttons  - in her garden in Kadina. 
The photo  on the left was taken in January.
It is now surrounded by everlastings - Bracteantha sp -the everlastings just love the gravel mulch.

The picture reminds me of a delightful scene in the Bogong High Plains. The paper daisies there were yellow with orange centre, similar to, or the same species as the ones in Sandra's garden.   It's marvellous that such a scene can be reproduced in limestoney, hot Yorke Peninsula
