First Babies

The first of the TreeProject seedlings are coming up already. About 25% of the Acacia mearnsii (black wattle) tubes have seedlings coming up:
Those that have popped out of their seed cases all have these reddish leaves. I haven't seen leaves this colour on any acacias I've grown in previous years, so it will be interesting to see how long they remain red.
