Last of Summer

Happy leap day!

This morning I found the first of the TreeProject seedlings are emerging.

Leptospermum juniperinum, Prickly tea-tree:
 Only one of these has appeared so far.

 Dodonaea viscosa, Sticky hop-bush:
A couple of these had emerged this morning, but by evening half a dozen had popped up.

Lastly, very very tiny Melaleuca parvistaminea, Rough paper-bark: 
 Almost impossible to see - even with my reading glasses on I could just see a tinge of green. Had to look at the photo on the computer to confirm that there were actual plants there. I wonder how the ones with a thicker layer of gravel mulch will ever manage to reach the surface?
