The Velvet Leaf Bush

Like several other local native plants/trees, flowers and fruit are carried along bare branches and trunks. Trees such as Coolamon, Pink Euodia and Davidson Plum for those in the know (posts about these may follow in the goodness of time) Some experts say to enable nectar-sipping bats to hold on better.
Unfortunately this Velvet Bush will probably die this winter, as the building just visible through the foliage has had its height increased and no sunshine will reach the bush for a matter of 5 or 6 months. Time will tell and all that.
So? Have you spotted the large green grasshopper yet?
