Even though the temperatures have finally plummeted and the rain continues to fall, the garden is clearly confused. The jonquils are out weeks before they should be!
The daisies are flowering too.
I was planning on pruning the roses this weekend, but they are covered in beautiful buds so I guess I will have to wait.
The yellow-tailed black cockatoos have been active again this winter, flying overhead either trying to stay warm or searching for food.
I was saddened to learn that these beautiful birds are considered ‘vulnerable’ due to rural and urban development reducing the bird’s woodland habitat. A little searching on the net informed me that the Hakea Carinata, a low growing native shrub, provides food and shelter for these birds as well as other native creatures.
Once the weather becomes warmer again we plan on sourcing some seeds of this lovely plant. We can squeeze a couple in the front garden and we could always do some guerrilla gardening in the empty grassed area across the road!
