Just when you think it can’t get any hotter here comes Bunuru the second summer! Bunuru has little to no rain, hot easterly winds with an occasional afternoon wardan (sea) breeze. Bunuru is a great time to live and fish along the coast, rivers and estuaries which is why Nyungars diets during this consisted mainly of freshwater and sea foods. White flowers, especially flowering gums including Jarrah, Marri and Ghost Gums are in full bloom. The Bayoo (Zamia Palm) seed changes colour from green to bright red, indicating they are ripening and becoming more attractive to animals, particularly the emu, that will eat the toxic fleshy outer part of the plant. The toxic seed then underwent a lengthy process to be made consumable and crushed to make a porridge meal and baked into cakes!
