Some colourful individual species were several bird of paradise, iris and hebe flowers. Pigface flowers are extremely colourful, while white lilies look nice with a dark background. A small patch of pink oxalis was growing in the centre of one lawn.
Many birds were seen on this walk, in trees, on the ground or flying overhead. Many sulphur-crested cockatoos were seen and heard flying overhead with one perching atop a tree and three were quietly having a rest in a gum tree.
Our nostrils were rewarded with the impending sighting of a large expanse of jasmine, truly a rewarding experience. Another rewarding experience was a fine display of rhododendrons, especially a cluster of buds about to burst into flower.
Many dogs were seen, particular 'Buddy', a puppy of many breeds. He agreed to pose for a couple of photos. The muffled sounds of a barking dog were heard passing one house which was a little curly-haired doggy yapping at me from behind a window.
Buddy became an instant buddy, while I wondered how much was the doggy in the window.
What I thought was a variant of the pride of madeira bush was later identified as a vipers bugloss. Another later identified plant was a red claws bush. The subtle colours of a field rose and a lilac tree toned down the brightness a little.
Ervin Road is a well-established area with many weatherboard houses still on wide and deep blocks. Many blocks have been developed into multi-units, fortunately, few of multi-story, which keeps the original ambience of the area. One lychgate, several picket fences were observed and a metal fence with a honey locust tree overhanging looked attractive.
