Waratah blooms well this year

All around the Southern Highlands this year are some of the finest waratah blooms
I've seen in a while. These rare white waratah (pictured) are growing in a Robertson garden and would quite likely be clones from a plant that was found in the late 1960's by waterboard workers. SCA land, due to its pristine nature, would have many rare and endangered species within its no-go zones. It is only correct management of these areas that will allow these species to continue.

    Let us hope the wild White Waratah survives the SCA's plant to drain the Kangaloon Aquifer.

    Otherwise, it might survive only as a garden plant - a kind of "living fossil".

    The Orchids and other things are threatened too. What a mess the SCA is about to make, of the pristine "Special Area". And they threaten us with $11,000 fines - while they go in an wilfully destroy the environment. Ironic, eh?

    Keep up the good work.
