I wanted to share with you these most beautiful flowers that blossom in early Autumn every year. 

Collecting the nectar makes for a happy walk to school.  On dewy, damp mornings the nectar literally runs down your fingers, rather delicious.

In the early mornings we hear the gentle whistles of the rainbow lorrikeets as they too collect the nectar outside our bedroom windows.

It is such a lovely time of year.  At the moment it feels a little like an Indian summer like we had in Canada.  The days get shorter, the sun angles more to the north, we get closer to winter, the nights are cooler but the days stay warm and clear.
