“That water lily, pretty that lily. This one here all the vines around him, on top of the water too and tucker underneath the water. That round one is our tucker”. Phyllis describes the way water lilies grow. They spread their leaves on top of the water, underneath the water are the roots and stalk and a round, fleshy tuber that is edible. This tuber was a bush food collected traditionally by the Aboriginal people.
