new flora discovered in Footscray Park

Posted in: General

Walking the dog in Footscray Park is always a bit of an adventure. There’s all the usual park type stuff along with a lot of detritus which, generally speaking, should have bypassed the park and gone straight to the bin. Typically, this is the stuff the dogs love the most.
Today we discovered a new type of flora deep in the heart of the park. The dog had disappeared from sight for a suspicious length of time so I headed towards the general area in which she had last been positively sighted. Loud rustling and frenzied movement identified her position in the midst of tangled vegetation. After much persuading and cajoling (read shouting) she eventually emerged licking her chops, dancing with glee and bearing the remains of a pizza. Closer examination revealed pizza crust dotted at various intervals throughout the foliage. She had discovered the mythical pizza tree.
And made a bee line for it when we arrived at the park this afternoon. Much to my annoyance I think it will be a new favourite.

    So I should be replacing the rose bushes at home with these trees. Really.

    You can do so much more with a pizza tree!!
