We have so many eucalypts and native plants with unobtrusive flowers,  it feels fantastic when the ornamental plum tree is in full blossom.   A real burst of colour which attracts both birds and insects. This week, two Red Wattle Birds have been feeding from the blossoms every day.  I’ll post the bird photos tomorrow.  Today I wanted to look at the contrast between the cultivated garden, and the wild trees beyond.

Pink, beautifully perfumed blossom provides a welcome contrast to the Australian native eucalypts in the background.
