Rosella in the Garden
After a busy weekend planting loads of native saplings we have been given, and acquired (via the annual weed swap) the bush is starting to look full of promise with horoeka or lancewood, kakabeak, kowhai, cabbage trees or ti kouka , Pohutukawa, toetoe cutty grass, New Zealand Flax and many more srubs and trees. Give it a couple of years and it will look great.
We were rewarded this morning with a visit from a pair of Rosellas, as well as fan tails and tui (loving the flowering Kowhai!) Hand't spotted the other regular Keraru (Wood Pigeons) but heard Morepork owls again last night and the silver eyes do the rounds too.
