Weekend Flowers: A Beach Flower and a little surprise

We took a drive down beyond the Gold Coast to a beautiful beach below Fingal Head called Dreamtime Beach. More about this in another post.
I discovered this flower (no idea what it is) and a little surprise...

So cute. And different markings from the usual. It was a very nice day out for us all. Peaceful by the sea.

Nice shot, when I see these flowers, I am even more confronted with the winter here in The Netherland. My last three blog articles are about snow.

Greetings,
Filip

I found some of these on our holiday too, lovely aren't they. It's called Canavalia Rosea or Sword Bean. The ladybug was a pretty bonus!
