Mid-August and the wattles are gearing up for their September splendour, although the Cootamundra Wattles that I inherited are already past their flowering prime they are still quite spectacular with grey foliage contrasting with abundance of yellow. 204mm of rain have fallen on the block so far this winter - hopefully there's plenty more to come as we move into spring. As a slight downside, this month's birdbath pics is likely to be a slim volume - have only managed one photo session there so far due to rain/moisture in the air.
First pink flower on this daisy bush (my generic small flower name when I don't know) which is where the blue wrens have built their nest the last two years.
The eucalypts are flowering and there are a lot of Crimson Rosellas about eating the fruits - one can hear them crunching away overhead. They do like the trees in front of the verandah, but LW is getting less tolerant of visitors as spring approaches. Today I saw that the Eastern Rosellas have also returned.
So, as we approach the first anniversary of the blog, I'll leave the last word - er wave - to the LW.
