Just before we say goodbye to Summer - we had an extraordinary few weeks.  

'April Fool's' has come too soon.  The Paint Brush Lily, otherwise know as the April Fools OR March Flower generally  appearing between February and April.  Our first bloomer arrived in January with great color - see image below.  These plants have great medicinal purposes.  Treating open wounds (antiseptic), Asthma and can be used as a diuretic.

The Black African Oyster Catcher is near-threatened and hatching a great plan.  In Oyster Bay, we have a few pairs of these gorgeous birds.  Some of them have had success in breeding.  We have a few Juveniles running around.  Great to see and enjoy.
