This morning a New Zealand Pigeon, or Kereru, flew round and stopped at the top of a Cabbage Tree , Cordyline A ustralis I’m sure, to eat some of the white berries. He /she then moved to another tall tree close by.These birds were once one of the the major dispersers of the Cabbage Tree seeds. He posed, not facing me, but side on, showing off beautiful plumage.
On the other side of the garden, early morning dew settled on the leaves of the Lamb’s Ears plants. Stachys Byzantina, drought tolerant and “ deer-resistant”, I wonder if rabbits like them as, although he was too fast for me to get a photo, Bugs Bunny was in another part of the garden, eating the few leaves left from some lupin plants.
Quotation of the day, author unknown,
“ Words and feathers are easily scattered,
but not so easily gathered up”
