Today we farewell Winter and although it still feels cold in inside our house, the warmth of Spring has arrived and with it comes screeching Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and Rainbow Lorikeets. Our Grevillea trees are flowering, as are the Coco Magnolias and neighbouring Eucalypts. The Koala has been returning every few days and is showering our yard with Koala poo and small branches of gum leaves, Bundy is obsessed with sniffing everything that falls from the tree and is happy to be outdoors for several hours at a time during the night whilst the Koala is around.
Recently I’ve been doing a bit of bird watching, we’ve had some beautiful sunny days and all sorts of feathered friends have made an appearance to dine on native wildflowers, breadcrumbs and grubs in the grass. While visiting family recently I had to sneak through doors and quietly navigate the yard to get some photos, many of the birds flew away before I could focus however others stuck around long enough for me to get a few shots. My Mum thought I was a little crazy wandering around the yard in my pyjamas and rubber boots 🙂
