Flames and Rainbows
It is mid-winter in Perth. Close to my house the flame trees are flowering.
On our way home from coffee Matthew and I stop to reflect on the lorikeet action going on in the trees.
Our delight in watching the Rainbow Lorikeets is such that I have to go home to get my camera and return for some photographs. Upside down, right way up – any way is a good way to eat.
“And these trees are delicious!”
You could walk right past your local trees and not notice…
…but it is good to stop and observe small miracles in our very midst.
Dedicated with love to my brother, Max Podstolski. His joy of birds ever since I can remember was inspirational – and contagious!
