I am now thinking these are pale vanilla lilies. Like the fringe lilies, they are blooming everywhere but you almost don't see them as you walk - they are so small and delicate.
This is new to me - the book says it is Slender Speedwell.
Plenty of birds around at the moment, most of which are high in the canopy. A flock of magpies are constantly flying around like black and white swooping flags, warbling and singing.
This is a crimson rosella, waiting for its friends to come back.

Another fringe lily, just because they are my favourites.
Blue pincushions - after a slow start they are all coming out on the north side.
Bluebell - not so many this year but this was a large one.
Vanilla lily - in my reference book these are purple but all the ones I have seen are white.
Often when a tree falls, it tried to keep growing, sending out lots of small spurts. This one has finally given up.
