Carpet Snakes and Floral Puzzles 

Driving back from Skippy Rock the other day, Andrew spotted a large snake with a distinctive pattern, much like he might have drawn a snake as a kid. We now think it was a Southwestern Carpet Snake (Morelias s. imbricata).

I'm checking out CALM's FloraBase to see if I can find out the name of Mum's Jalbarragup flower. No luck so far. Gill (who's good with identifying native flora) doesn't have the Internet at home and won't be back at work till next week. My over-the-phone description wasn't enough to identify the plant. I hope it's not a weed.
