The Northern Pitcher plant. I know of only one place where it grows in our state, and this is the first time I've ever been able to time a visit to Cranberry Glades to catch it in bloom. The unique pitcher-shaped leaves were not prominently visible yet.

Purple Plant Eater - Monadnocks National Park by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

This silver and purple plant caught my eye as we walked over the granite slabs of Mt Cuthbert. My Google fu, however, has let me down identifying it.

This was to be the last training walk before Ibu Anne took on the Oxfam Trailwalker 50km. Just a short one, 12 km circuit over Mt Cuthbert and Mt Vincent. At this point of the walk, we had joined the Bibbulmun Track and where closing in on the summit of Mt Cuthbert, the rain had hit, the southerly wind picked up and it was freezing on the exposed granite outcrops of Mt Cuthbert when I paused to photograph Mt Vincent to our south and our next and last peak for the day.

On a positive note, Ibu Anne having completed the 50 km walk, ticked off the Trailwalker in early October 2018.
