backyard, front yard

One of my favorite things about being at home is looking out the windows and seeing wilderness and wildlife. From our living room, we can watch the sunrise over tall Karri forests. From our kitchen window, we can watch the colorful rosellas, ringnecks, and redcapped parrots that come to our garden for tomatoes and bird seed. Here are a couple photos I took yesterday from each window.

The birds also love this red flowering bottlebrush tree outside our living room window
