Today I visited the Granite walk with Jess, a colleague and an economist with a heart. I wanted to show her the visual delight of colour and form of a wandoo draped over a large granite rock that is shown at 2 times in the day below. Jess admitted that it is a nice rock (but not suitable for a quarry I guess!).
This hardy and delightful species has male and female plants like the she-oaks. Male plant flowers appear normal at first glance, but are basically petals and anthers that released a cloud of pollen when Jess touched them. She loved that. The female plant flowers are just the ovary with a red style (tube). So if you know any economists who need an emotional kickstart, take them to the Granite Walk in late summer-autumn.
