Participants of FoMM’s wildflower walk on Sunday 11. November were amongst the first who enjoyed a walk along a recently upgraded and partially re-routed track at the northwest slope of Mt Majura. Hoary Sunrays and other native forbs were a delight (see some photos). Less pleasant were the woody weeds particularly hawthorns growing along the track. They will be tackled at our December working party along with the Pine tree posing as a Christmas tree.
