Spring flowers

It’s good to see such strong spring flowering after a few dry years. Only a few species at present but hopefully more to follow. At the reserve now the highlights are Acacia melanoxylon around the western entrance, Mirbelia platyloboides and Hovea linearis, the latter almost a carpet in some areas.

At the September work day Peter and Mary spent some time tidying up the fallen trees while the rest of us went on patrol, finding plenty of sprouting Montbretia, a few flowering gorse and plenty of small holly.
