October 10, 2010 Young Grasstrees

A quiet day up here in the Tablelands. A walk to the library yielded no exciting finds. But, I did note a stand of Australian native fauna, known as Grasstrees (Xanthorrhoea preissii), in the library grounds.

They are extremely slow growing, and have a life span of around 600 years. They are tough, and will re-grow even after bush fires.
