Birds and Plants of Pangarinda Arboretum

Last week we had a short picnic at the Pangarinda Arboretum at Wellington East about a half hour drive south of our home here in Murray Bridge, South Australia.

It was a sunny winter’s day and the birds were very active, especially the honeyeaters. I didn’t get much of a chance to take photos of birds because none would sit and pose for me -except for one very cooperative New Holland Honeyeater.

So instead of getting upset with the uncooperative birds, I spent most of my time taking photos of the many plants in flower.

    Thanks for visiting Brenton, and for leaving a comment. I agree with you – Australia has some wonderful flora. My wife is more heavily into the plant scene so our interests complement each other nicely. You can see her blog about Australian plants by clicking on the link on the sidebar – Mallee Native Plants – she runs a small nursery.
