a short trip out of MtLawleyShire

I went to one of my favourite places to meet a friend – Matilda Bay on the banks of the Swan River.  It wasn’t a long visit, so there was no wandering amongst trees – we had coffee and a wonderful chat, but there was time for a few photos.

The first thing I noticed was the floating pier in the river was almost completely covered in cormorants.  It was rally hard to fit them all in!


Just below where we sat overlooking the river was a small Grevillea bush with its brilliant scarlet flowers:



There is a lovely mix of trees all around the cafe.  Here is Cape Lilac, gum trees and a massive, ancient cypress:

I love the massive strength of the trunk of this cypress:

A cockatoo – I think it’s a major mitchell, but I’m probably wrong) alone in a  tree.  Later I saw a whole flock of them searching for seeds on the grass but – silly me! – I didn’t get a photo.

A lovely stripey sort of gum tree:


It was a short visit 🙂  Hope you enjoyed.

    Of course I love it, the birds a nice shot. The Grevillea bush such a rewarding shrub for the garden, and then of course the trees, did you major in horticulture or something that you can identify them all, or is it just the love for them that shows in your photos?


  5. Love how you know the names of the trees and the birds! I sure don’t. 😀
