Garden visitors

No Alice - not yet. We're not there yet. Best pictures will be, I think, in about a week's time. But maybe by then the Ixias will have finished. Hmmmm.....

In the meantime - here are today's visitors. I can never remember if these are the Rainbow Lorrikeets or the Eastern Rosellas. I think the first. I think...

How lucky you are to get such beautiful birds in your feeder. We have nothing that compares in Michigan. I thought our red cardinals were nice, but they are nothing in comparison!
