Along Jamison Creek, even more ferns!

It’s been a year since the fire, so here are some more photos (taken on Tuesday 15th January)

note the buildings on the top of the hill

At first hanging swamp

lots of ferns

small trees are coming back

The fallen tree is doing well.

ferns and grasses

great regrowth

lots of ferns

great change since October

this was bare in October. A lot of the tea-trees have died.



note the old trailer

ferns and grasses

Overall the area is doing well and is much improved since September/October, when lack of rain killed off most of the regrowth. If we get reasonable rain over the next few months, the area should be on the way to complete recovery.




During the rain

Some photos about noon on 28 November, after 80 mm of rain

lots of mulch washed away!

major overflow!

Central Park waterfall!

Planting 24 May

After a hard mornings weeding,

we did some planting:

Work has started on the bio-filtration unit on the other side of the Park. I took two photos of the fine placement of rocks in the ditch.
