I'm not sure what this tree is so if you help identify it please let me know in the comments. It is lovely with the clumps of bells hanging as if to let you know the leaves are on their way.

The Vulcan Magnolia had the most blooms it has ever had. It loved the wetter summer and the milder winter this year.
This is one of the three weeping birches around our little fish pond. I love the little seed pods that hang from it in the winter months giving it a totally new costume.
The Silver Birch in winter is a beautiful tree. You get an opportunity to really admire the silver bark of the trunk when it is bare of leaves.
Acacia baileyana 'Purpurea' - Cootamundra Wattle
The Australian Wattle is about to burst into bloom. My favourite is the wattle that has the most beautiful purple coloured foliage. It is colourful all year round with soft blue grey foliage tipped with deep purple. At the moment it is about to flower with the traditional yellow balls of blossom but you can see the bright pink stems with orange buds just to add to nature's amazing artistry.
This lovely Camellia is easily seen from my kitchen window. Just behind it is the flowering ornamental Apricot tree.
