Spring is here!!

Today I thought that I would share with you all a picture of 2 juvenile King Parrots.
They are busy feeding from a Alexandra Palm not far from our back door.
At the moment the garden is a birds paradise with all of the flowers out.


Last year we built a arbour and planted the "Thunbergia Mysorensis" common name is "Lady Slipper Vine" The flowers are magnificent. The arbour is nearly all covered with this beautiful vine.



I hope that you enjoyed looking at the photo's.

Thank-you for coming by and having a look.
