My neighbour Carol's place


Carol's place in Winter becomes a dry and somewhat lifeless looking garden, half full of decidious shrubs and trees and contains few winter flowering plants but does not lose it's attractiveness to the bird life. Many, many bird species visit Carol's garden, even during winter.

However, the garden comes alive when some of the bigger trees (Sheoak and Pine) begin to go to seed which attracts many native parrots and cockatoos. Most of the various grasses also go to seed this time of year which attracts the smaller birds to Carol's garden.

Below is a small selection of photos that displays Carol's garden during winter.
