I spent a little while looking around the yard for things that were flowering, and was quite surprised to see that our Eucalyptus trees are blooming!
In fact, if I look back at the earlier photos in previous post, I can see their flowers then too!
There were quite a few other things flowering, that I'll share, as a reminder that winter doesn't have us in its grip yet!
I love the bright colours of the Fuchsias, below. These photos don't do them justice as their colours are like bright jewels on a dull day. The hummingbirds love them too! Because they are quite 'tender' they have now been moved to the greenhouse.
The winter camellia grows at the fence - it's always lovely to see it before winter finally hits!
The Hellebores under the forest canopy seem to be early, but they will flower for much of the winter, and we do have many of them happily brightening the 'forest' floor.
We have several native Mahonias ('Oregon grape') which are adding some brightness to the shady areas too:
Even the Cotoneaster berries add some colour to these grey days - and the birds have 'planted' these shrubs all over our yard:
Several varieties of holly are also producing berries, but I only took a picture of this one - a yellow variety, that also adds a bit of cheer (and the birds like it too)!

Sorry about all the damage, Van ... good that the greenhouse and driftwood bird were ok.
The videos and pics are great - very seasonal indeed - lovely to see

Quite a lot of damage there, Van.
Even in these conditions, your yard still looks wonderful.
