Winter colour

Marty features as the photographer in today's post.

I just had to show off his awesome photo of one of the 6 Rainbow Lorikeets in our tree this afternoon. Amazing pic Marty!

The tree is blossoming, although it's still winter. So are many of the other trees around! I hope they'll be ok.

Oh, and here's a quick update on the Flax in the front garden bed. I wasn't quite dense enough with the planting, so the weeds have been difficult to control. I don't know how big they're going to get, or when we'll see flowers.. but they've been interesting so far. Next year we'll have a better idea of what we're doing, I think!

Otherwise, we have yet more trees to plant out the back along the fence line. They are all native to this area and should really help feed the local birds (and provide a slightly nicer view as a bonus!).

Until next time!


  1. Great pic Marty. I just love all the colors on the little bird.

  2. We have a picket fence at the house we are renovating, but haven't painted it yet. Too many other jobs, but a knothole came out the other day.
