Seed Savers Albury-Wodonga sightings

With this project listing, we're keen to identify and share the flora and fauna seen by our members and friends - in gardens and the local area (Albury-Wodonga and surrounds). Feel free to add your sighting to our project, and to any others that are relevant! Seed Savers Albury-Wodonga is an incorporated group and member of the national seed savers network. Our goals include encouraging the use and saving of seed from locally appropriate and useful plants. We’re particularly keen on food plants, but any beneficial plant is of interest to us. We promote home food production and the saving of open pollinated seeds by running workshops, hosting guest speakers, maintaining a seed bank and by encouraging networking and sharing of practical skills between our members and guests.

    Not confident beyond family, might be Onesia? Though a bit too bright for that genus.

    Should have stuck with my first impression! Thanks Ken. And another addition to my Albury 'early bees' tally. :)
