The total harvest from this pear tree – the variety is Red Anjou. Aren’t the beautiful? I hope there are more next year as they were delicious as well!
A tiny tiny (about an inch long) feather from a Crimson Rosella – beautiful birds, but terribly destructive in the garden, eating new growth on shrubs and trees as well as any fruit, so trees must be covered with netting in order to harvest any.
The fruit of the Common Hawthorn, Crataegus monogyna photographed by the light of the rising sun. In this area, as in Europe, this plant is used for hedging, and many of the roads are lined with tall walls of them, covered at this time of year with wonderful red berries.
