Australian Nature

Australia has some huge trees here.  It never freezes so things never die back!  Eucalyptus trees shed their bark in the summer so the ground is littered with bark and the trees look disheveled.  Then we also have the magnificent birds here.  They are so colorful and loud!  Magpies, cockatoos and parrots are just a few of the birds that live in Perth.  And insects that I thought were big in Texas (like the roach) are gigantic here!  See the picture of the grasshopper below that I took in the backyard.
