New Zealand Tea Tree

For awhile I had a New Zealand Tea Tree (Leptospermum scoparium) growing in a large pot in my back yard. Several varieties of this species can be found in the nursery trade. This dark red variety is my favorite, and it is quite popular in California. Later on, when I visited New Zealand, I was able to actually walk through a forest of wild tea trees, which the New Zealanders call "manuka" trees. But all of them, even the ones in cultivation, had white or pale pink flowers.

Bill✔️  Wax-eye (Tauhou) having "an absolute ball" in a massive cluster of food-rich  Kowhai flowers, a New Zealand early springtime scene. Winter can be quite hard for many birds, and for nectar-eaters, the Kowhai are the first food of the new summer season. Tui birds also wait and wait till Spring time, and will then fly up to 100kms to get the good food!  (Image curation & caption: @BillGP).  Bill Gibson-Patmore.  Bill✔️

Whilst walking back to the carpark at the Rainbow Falls, Kerikeri, we could hear the beautiful songs of the Tui. After setting up the long lens, the Tui had disappeared, but in it’s place, the mighty Kereru hung around for around twenty minutes. Shooting from only a few metres away, we captured a few photos […]
