Tendrils, filigree and fernery

A quick dash out into the garden in the sunshine on a finer day between the freezing rain and wind days this week. And this is what my eye was attracted to.

      With all the rain we have had since April the growth and lushness in the garden is rampant. These Kowhais are the dwarf type called “Dragon’s Gold”. The Tui seem to ignore these lower growing flower producers.

        Tee hee……I wonder if the flowers lack the delicious nectar or the Tui simply do not like being so close to the ground. My observations would indicate that they much prefer being up on high branches or at least have higher branches to hop swiftly up to. They very rarely go down on the ground.

        Yes, it would seem the tui feel safer at higher levels. Which makes me think; wax-eyes are often at low levels but I rarely see them actually on the ground.
