Rain brings new life.

We have had a considerable amount of rain recently here in East Gippsland and as a result of that rain the garden is looking verdant.  We are now in Autumn but today we had a beautiful warm summer’s day.

The bougainvillea is blooming.

The winter crocuses are in flower.

The bees are attracted to the garlic chives.

The bronze winged pigeon has reared her young and is letting them rest beneath the grapefruit tree.  They obviously don’t feel threatened as they let you get quite close.

  1. Your garden is so exotic! I love bougainvillea, it reminds me of being on holiday somewhere warm and sunny. I’ve never seen or heard of a bronze winged pigeon, but it looks lovely. Pigeons here are generally regarded as vermin, somewhat unfairly, I feel.
