Our beautiful Bottlebrush and gum trees are putting on a glorious show at the moment.
I added a couple of visitors to the garden....a Possum and my favourite bird...a Willy Wagtail which is a very cheeky bird indeed.  ;D

Very cute Terri.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

The orchids are about done here, so much heavy rain has ruined a lot of the flowers. :'( On the bright side, there is almost always something blooming here. Will see what comes out next!  :)

 O0 WELL DONE, TERRI!!!  You really captured the likeness of the bottlebrush tree.  I like your visitors, too! We had a couple of trees in our front yard and I trimmed them by hand, sculpting them into an oval shape.  My husband would hold the 8' ladder for me while I used the hedge trimmer.  I remember those nubby things on the stiff prickly branches that scratched my arms and legs. ~Liz
