Wondering who might pop in next led to these little characters, inspired by a piece of rainbow felt and, it seems, the thoughts of Spring. For now it is rather chilly and, although blossoms and bulbs are starting to bloom, Spring still seems a distant dream.
During Winter these red pompom flowers are attracting a variety of wildlife, especially honey eater birds. The wallabies also enjoy the blooms. However,this week the jasmine has exploded into bloom, dripping over the verandah rail and sending wafts of perfume all around the yard and into the house keeping the promise of Spring alive and enticing.
