Oregon-grape plant

  1. How lovely. These look like the Mahonia flowers which I first photographed in the Royal Botanic Gardens here in Melbourne a couple of years ago……..
    (Whoops-a-daisy – they ARE Mahonia s – just looked them up on the internet. I didn’t know they were also called Oregon-grape plants).
    As they have leaves like holly, I used the image on the front of some home-made Christmas cards that year.
