This week, the series of photos taken at Middle Lagoon will be about the flowers found there in May 2013.
The first one is a butterfly-pea (Clitoria ternatea), also called blue-pea and cordofan-pea. It is a plant species belonging to the Fabaceae family. The flowers of this vine have the shape of human female genitals, hence the Latin name of the genus “Clitoria”.
It is regarded as a weed in Western Australia.
