.. and when you have used all the leaves of the weeping wattle you can stop the diarrhoea with a decoction of powderded bark and a piece of the root stem.

Save a leaf or two for later- mix with water and it will make a nice soapy foam to wash your hands.

Just be cearfull when in flower bees are normally attracted in great numbers so carefully check for any before you do any wiping! :D :D :D

All our indigenous trees are beautiful. Love them all!! But my favourite in the Kruger is the Sycamore Fig and Nyala Tree. There is the most gorgeous Nyala at Pafuri picnic spot.
