Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Well it's been a few daze since I've bored you all to death with pics of Princess Lilly so here goes.....

Here she is demolishing a bouquet of eucalypt flowers which I risked my life and limb raiding from our local primary school. I get out there at some ungodly hour of the morning with my trusty secateurs in hand before the scary groundskeeper gets there and harvest whatever I can find and beat a hasty retreat (you can just see it now can't you!)

The main flowering seasons for many eucalypt species are winter and spring so I have NO idea what i'm going to do once there's no more blossom available and she gets ravenous - she's a tiny little thing but she's relentless when she wants something!

PS Thanks to Scott I finally worked out how to post BIG pictures... thanx Scott!

PPS Lilly shown here larger than actual size!!!
