Hello Janice, this is quite a story and if ever I come accross one in a garden centre, I sure will grow one. Incredible when you know how things get a proper interest. Thank you for your note and the picture!

Great subject matter, the needles look rather flat and broad. I remembering here about these when they were first found, thanks for bringing them to life for me.

Thats what it's all about, loving nature to the fact that we learn all the time.
Good on you for taking the image and showing us because I for one know nothing of the wollemi pine and have not heard of it. Great notes to go with your image.

An interesting story, but the photo was also good.
Sharp and good colors and shows us the object in a good way.

A fine close-up showing this remarkable tree!
Interesting story, nicely illustrated by this fine image...
Well composed, sharp fine details and vivid colours!
Hey Janice, this is neat. I thought these were only in Australia. Kind of like Vegemite I guess. The Auzzies are finding ways to export them so the natives can feel at home anywhere in the world. These have gone from near extinct to being somewhat prolific. They are now in every Botanical Garden in every city here, and of course people can buy them. I'm glad to see you can buy them in Canada. Maybe when I come back I too will keep one of the memories alive with one of these.
Nothing wrong with your image. If you intended this shot as a documentary (and I think you did) then it is perfect, with perfect clarity and colour, and great notes.

Hi Janice. Good to see you also have this old timer! They certainly are good to look and and their history is just incredible. The same species is now being sold locally. Excellent clarity & colour. TFS. Murray.
