Even brighter were several patches of pigface succulents. Several flowering kalanchoe succulents, both as singular plants or groupings added colour to many gardens. Two other single stem succulents looked good including a black one.
Despite the abundance of trees and shrubs, few birds were seen. Several currawongs alighted onto the inner branches of a gum tree. A wattlebird chose more inner branches of a conifer to feed. The only other bird I saw was an unusual shape perched on an overhead wire. With its hooked beak, I think it was a grey butcherbird.
Currawong and a wattle bird somewhere within the tree.
One large front garden had a picturesque terraced area and one of the few fences was a picket. Another picket fence almost had a lychgate. A rusting garden lamp fitted into the almost rustic neighbourhood very well.
Growing in gardens and on the verge were many blue poker type flowers which I think were pride of madeira plants. Definitely unidentified was a mass of small red flowers and some bright pink flower heads.
