Just before I took possession of my Foothills DryAway I was standing at the kitchen stable door staring out into our back garden - daydreaming.
A movement caught my eye, and, re-focusing my eyes, I spied this beauty on the pineapple sage plant which stand at the entrance to my covered veggie patch.It was a spectacular Southern Double-Collared Sunbird.

Southern Double Collared Sunbiords beak is deeply
embedded into the pineapple sage flower
He was the reason that I thought to shove an armful of pineapple sage into the DryAway
At the end of the day the armful had reduced down to a cereal bowl full, and...
...30 grams of dried pineapple sage will soon be on it's way to a very special person. Who can that be...? ;)
