A sturdy work session with lantana early this morning followed by working on the walking tracks, removing obstacles in readiness for the school visits. I think there will be over 12 students so I have to be prepared. Leeches, stinging flies all abundant at the moment.I would like to find a keen botanist for the day visits so the pupils can print identification labels of some of the many trees.
I take my camera when I am working in the garden. Often more of a nuisance, because hands are covered in soil and fingers are clumsy. But once in a while I get a photo I really like and these are two which I took yesterday.
This magnificent tree travelled on the train from Sydney as a tiny seedling. A
blue quandong, it was a gift from Yana Berzins, a fellow traveller who cared about the whole environment.
