Friends of Yorktown Historic Site

On Monday 25th July our little band of Friends of Yorktown met for a working bee. Our aim was to check on our heathland area which over the last two years we have been supplementing with nursery grown stock plants. We have had very few losses, which is pretty amazing considering the recent dry Spring and Summer. We tended some plants which were under water, straightened up covers, put in more plants, then cut and pasted some cursed gorse and grubbed out some of the marauding Lomandra. For some reason this sagg thinks it has the right to take over the world, or at least Yorktown, and leave no room for sharing with our other natives, such as the Patersonia, Epacris, Hibbertia and orchids. Work over for the day, we enjoyed a scramble through nearby bush searching for interesting fungi.
