Dedicated to the memory of Susan Joy Foster (nee Grimshaw), who began the garden.

The King Parrots (Alisterus scapularis) come looking for food every day. They must live close by, because often if I start working in the garden a pair show up, sitting patiently nearby waiting to see if they are going to get fed. However, they only get fed every few days because otherwise they become too dependent on human charity, rather than foraging for themselves.
