RTBG Thursday 26th November 2020

Thursday was cloudless; the official temperature reached 22 degrees but felt warmer within the confines of the Food Garden at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens (RTBG). The achievements of the day were to remove fast growing weeds in the orchard where the trees offered some cover and protection from the hot sun, and to add fresh sawdust and raking of the footpaths.

Thanks to Pam we have a photographic record showing the lushness of the area in which they worked.

The highlight was the resident wallaby who didn’t bound away immediately. Previously we have disturbed a wallaby hidden sleeping for the day under the weeds and plants; on that occasion, s/he bounded away to find a more secure hidey hole. Last Thursday the wallaby didn’t rush away. Can you find the animal in Pam’s photos below?
