Australian Beauty, Bottlebrush

11 Feb


Australia is blessed with many delightful plants.

One of my favourites is the hardy Bottlebrush.

This one is growing in our yard. A bonus is its irresistible attraction to  native birds such as Wattlebirds. My day is often brightened by the dual delight of seeing both these lovely flowers and their  feathery visitors.

    What an unusual plant though very pretty. I’d happily have a few of those if they brought the birds in.

    I have one in my backyard, too, and I love it–brings in roselas and lorikeets.

      Aren’t you lucky? I wish that I could see these beautiful parrots in mine, too. They live nearby in the bushland park. 🙂

    The color is awesome and I sure would love to have some in my yard. You are truly blessed

      I agree, Odie. 🙂 There are many delights to be had in this part of the world. 🙂
