Week 2 May 2009: No rain this week.

We have a number of Hakea drupacea plants scattered throughout the garden. A couple of weeks ago one plant burst into bloom. This week the plant produced more flowers. Some other specimens also flowered a few weeks ago but no blooms on them this time.

More planting this week in our Triangle Garden with another 24 plants going into the ground. Some rain to get them going would be welcome.

More visitors to Yallaroo this week. Some people from Coonabarabran spent a morning walking around the garden. A pleasant time was had by all. We remember Coonabarabran from many years ago when we were rangers at the Warrumbungle National Park. “Coona” is the closest town to the Park.

One morning this week four Sulphur-crested Cockatoos were perched in a dead tree north of the house. Cockatoos sometimes fly over but never visit. These four did not stay long.

Potted on some seedlings this week including Eucalyptus pulverulenta. These seedlings were grown from seed collected from one of our plants. As the garden develops more seed will become available from maturing Eucalypts.

New on the Site: Crested Pigeon and Eastern Rosella.
