From a dense lovegrass dominated cattle paddock, to a scraped bare site (see Patch Protection post 14 Nov 14), to a potential grassland full of flowers!

Well, it's not there yet, and it has had its fair share of skeleton weed and fleabaine. However, the yellow box patch has seen a wonderful germination of a wide range of forbes, planted with the help of Greening Australia.

These photos were taken last week by Nikki Taws (Greening Australia) as she came out to check her (favourite?) Patch Protection site.

She was pleased.

So are we!
