Our Taiwan flowering cherry (Prunus campanulata) in the garden at the farm is in full bloom right now.
It is the very first of our spring blossoms to burst into the cold late winter air. It is always so special when it comes into flower after the bareness of winter. A really bold statement, & so beautiful against a bright blue sky.
I caught a noisy miner helping himself to the nectar.
These birds are very common in eastern Australia and a bit annoying. They are true to their name, very noisy & bully other birds. You can hear what they sound like here.
