Mona Vale Eye Balm
There are lots of warm places in Mona Vale, even during winter, that receive the sun in a manner that makes for colourful and profuse displays of flowers. Grevilleas of all varieties, from the spider flowers in the bush, to the larger versions featured here, are out in every hue at present. Among them are others not bothered by snow winds, tiny but still managing eight petals, or long soft bright orange bells attracting bees and birds.
