A Monday Morning Run Through the Lens of my iPhone

On an early morning run today, I was distracted by the scent of wild freesia which has begun blooming during these late winter days in Perth.  The scent was so intoxicating that I decided to document some of the amazing flora in this part of Western Australia at this time of year teetering between winter and spring.  As a Canadian, I continue to be fascinated by the wide variety of Gums or Eucalyptus trees indigenous to this part of the world.
