Bunya Nut

On the way back from the Hay come Tractor shed the path leads past the  Bunya Nut which was planted a decade or so ago. It's doing well and to prevent loneliness a mate was planted about 20 or 30 metres away. Eventually these Jurassic fossils will reach 40-50 metres. The first one was a gift from someone as was its mate. There is something primitive about its leaf profile and it emanates a special feeling as you pass by.

The good thing is its fruit which we are anticipating. We made sure they are planted well away from anything the 5KG fruit will damage as it descends to earth.
