Some of the things I have been contemplating on contributing for OWS perhaps can also be some of my Favourite Things as Patti from Ragtag asked.
Perhaps some of the small things in my world should be a start. The feature photo is a Scarlet Honeyeater, the smallest honeyeater and a red jewel that flashes through my garden and the forest.

I love having Stingless Native Bees in my garden

I have to include some big things too. Kookaburras are always hunting in the garden and waking me with their morning song

Isn’t she a beauty. She lived in my laundry for a Summer and then came into the lounge and dining rooms for Winter last year. I think she became bored of my company and headed outside.170315_side view_huntsman_size

Lismore Rainforest Botanical Gardens – the paths

It was the beginning of a hot day when we went to the Lismore Botanical Garden. We have been meaning to go every time we go to the Recycling Centre or as it is commonly know, the Tip Shop. Yes great bargains are to be had from the things that people throw away. But I digress. The morning was starting to heat up but it was cool walking among the trees. There has been very low rainfall so the plants were not at the best. We will go back when the rains come and I’ll show you some of the fabulous flowers, seeds, plants and hopefully there will be lots more birds.

The Gardens are a community project and the volunteers do a fabulous job. Over four hectares have been planted with dry, subtropical and riverine rainforest species. Here is their website

Enjoy walking the paths of the Lismore Rainforest Botanical Gardens
