The story details bush plum seeds as they are blown across the lands at the time of creation.
The bush plum is a plant that grows in a great profusion of colour after the rain, but very quickly disintegrates after long hot summer months. Generally found growing alongside creek beds, it is a small fruit with black seeds that can be eaten raw or cooked and is collected when the fruit is golden in colour. The bush plum continues to be an important food source. The Dreaming is celebrated in women’s ceremonie which teaches the young initiates about seasonal change both in nature and in women’s lives.
