Early this morning I photographed a couple of the pink bottlebrush in the back garden.
They were planted to attract insects and birds into the garden as well as be beautiful.
They are all a bit too small for both the nectar and insect eating birds, but in another 18 months time they will be just the right size.
While this was going on Tim waited patiently for his bath and pondered the meaning of life budgie style with a lot of chattering and excitement.
Wanda wondered if it was really necessary to go outside to have a bath at all, as she prefers to wade through one of the drink bowls.
