    Great Photo Anne, Yes it is upon us already – it only feels like I’ve just recovered from the last one! Hehehe!

  • Thanks Tash. :o) and you’re so right! How’s your ‘tree space’ clearing going? You will have to pop over some time to see AND believe the transformation in my backyard!

    lovely colours and texture Anne

  • thanks Tom. They’re such a stunning little creature. I did a little reading up though, although native, they can be devastating to eucalypts. Bummer.

    Oh crap! “pretty” devastating then -sort of like the Pine Beetle in Canada – Global warming has seen an increase in these little tree killers too.
