Life cycle

I’ve talked before about my love of grasstrees.
In the last few weeks, walking through the Scrub,
I’ve glimpsed grasstrees at all stages of their life cycle.

Some were growing and establishing themselves:



Some were flowering:



And some were dying and decaying:



At each stage of their life
grasstrees seem to me unique, strange, prehistoric …
and beautiful.
