My own journey with the Bunya has just begun, and it will take more than one lifetime. Patience again to see and experience the seasons with the tree, its now December 2017 and there’s a bumper crop of Bunya Nuts.
Our family was fortunate to be given their first Bunya Cone, and my son had his first Bunya Tree climb. These sweet kernels are so delicious and beautiful; it took me half a day to slowly pull this cone apart, document, play and experiment with mark making and the different forms, and a very short time for my family to eat the tender sweet kernels.
Knowing that this tree is now part of our families lived experience, and the short window during the summer season makes it more poignant and special.
