The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul. ~ Alfred Austin

Willy Wagtails and Wisteria

I took my camera with me this morning and after finishing at work I called into my parents place. They have a very beautiful as well as productive garden. I wanted to take some pictures of the gorgeous wisteria. It is planted along their side fence and can be seen out the kitchen and dining room windows. It is absolutely covered in flowers and so beautiful.

The other day when I was there we were sitting out the back having a coffee and a New Holland Honeyeater was catching his mid-morning snack mid-air. There was mozzies buzzing about and he was having a great feed. I was hoping he would be doing the same today as I didn't have my camera with me the other day. Today it was the Willy Wagtails turn. He couldn't have cared less that I was standing there with my camera pointed at him. They are cheeky little birds and so nice to see them in the garden.

The wisteria really is beautiful and I need to plant one in my garden!


  1. Fantastic photos, you can tell that it is well and truly spring in your neck of the woods. That wisteria is just gorgeous!


    1. Thank you Tania :) It's not so spring like today, more like the middle of winter! Yes the wisteria is gorgeous and I will definitely need to find a spot to plant one in my garden. It's such a beautiful time of year :)
