    Not much happening here but the strawberry tree is looking good in the sunshine, its pretty tall now so not easy to get a good picture, its bare at the base and covered by other shrubs low down. Fruit ripening now and its flowering.

      The Arbutus is beautiful! Do you find that the birds have a go at flowers and fruits? Mine is near the sparrow colony in the roof and I'm sure the little *****s pick them off!

          Not noticed any bird damage on the flowers here, unlike the Feijoa which the sparrows really do pick off the petals.
