A visit from a real beauty to start off the day!

Woke up this morning and it felt like there was going to be a break in the atrocious summer weather for today.  It was a pleasant 26 degrees C (78F) early this morning, so I went for a walk around the garden before heading off to work.  That's when I spotted this beauty:

This is the Pale-Headed Rosella (Platycercus adscitus) which is endemic to north-eastern and eastern Australia.  I just love it when these blue-bodied beauties come by ... they are a delight to the eye!

Another lovely sight to greet me this morning were my two pots of Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender' ... they are going wild and are such a pretty plant.  The tiny flowers are such a wonderful sight close-up!

  1. What an attractive bird ... I've never seen a pale rosella like this ... ours are all crimson.
