A Feathered Visitor

At 6.30am this morning we had a visitor to our garden.  It was the magnificent male "Australian King Parrot".  The scarlet on his head and chest was gleaming to almost orange in the early morning sunshine.  
We hope he calls back soon.  He was a little too far away for a camera shoot, maybe next time.. ...

There has been some work done in the sewing room, but the pace will have to pick up if I am to do all the Christmas gifts I want to get done.  Why do I always leave it til the last few weeks?  

I did make these coasters for my daughter to give her mother-in-law for Christmas.

Aren't the King Parrots just amazingly beautiful. I adore them too. We have them visit sometimes because I put parrot seed out, but they don't seem to hang around on a regular basis. One year I grew sunflowers, and they thought that was Christmas Dinner for a few weeks. I wonder how you could get them to visit regularly.
