Restricted in gallivanting, I started to focus (LOL) on a plethora of autumn colour in my own garden. A long long winter ahead, but the plants are getting ready.
First, lots of correa:
Then different grevillea, covering the ground effectively and all flowering; the Red Wattlebirds (would probably be better named Red-wattle Birds) really love this:
Amongst the flowers, are lots of fruit and vegetable flowers providing food now and soon for me:
The figs have gone nowhere this year probably due to the early drought, nowhere except into the grateful Pied Currawong and Satin Bowerbird beaks.
Working clockwise from the top left, we have basil, feijoa, pumpkin, thai basil, capsicum, pineapple sage, myer lemons, beans, zucchini, bay leaf, and garlic chives.
The air plant, which hangs within a tea-tree and has no roots into the ground, took a lot of work during the long drought, but is certainly thriving with some rain:
Then the camellias, rhododendrons and magnolias are all gearing up:
Around the garden, being mid-Autumn, there was a surprising number of flowers to brighten the place up.
And also preparing was the conifer, with some seeds surprisingly untaken by the Crimson Rosellas or Sulphur-crested Cockatoos. A few hours later, three Crimson Rosellas were finishing them off.
And finally, again due to the mid-February downpours, lots of new growth:
So plenty in the garden to enjoy at home, whilst watching the many birds that also make it their home.
