This plant (similar to Wattle) has thorns on it which the Indigenous people used to remove warts. They would push 3 to 4 thorns under each wart and within a few days the wart would dry up and drop off! Amazing!

We had a fantastic day with fantastic weather. We thank Mrs Williams for organising the day for us.
