On the way to Gosford last weekend, we called at Mt. Annan Botanic Gardens. They are really worth a visit. There has been much more rain in that part of the world and things are green, with some native plants, red kangaroo paws, geraldton wax and others, already flowering. The 'Evolution of Australian Plants' garden is very interesting

We were disappointed to see around the cafe and restaurant many noisy miners, hoping to pick up crumbs dropped by visitors. Away from the cafe, around the lakes we saw

Yellow robins
Yellow-faced honeyeater
Red wattle birds
Striated pardalotes
A bulbul
Superb fairy wrens
Grey fantails
Red-browed firetails
A crested shrike-tit
Striated thornbills
White faced heron
Numerous ducks

Probably a few others as well

Oh, yes, a plant, an imprisoned wollemi pine, about 2 mtrs tall, skinny
