Golden wattle

The Golden Wattle has started to flower in our local bushland. So far there are only a few plants in bloom, but there are so many bushes just filled with buds, and it is going to be quite a sight to behold in a few weeks.

The Golden Wattle, Acacia pycnantha, is Australia's floral emblem, and its appearance, for me, marks the start of the floral abundance of spring. Just seeing these few flowers today makes me joyful!

  3. Oh my. :) I made SO many errors in that post. I must have had a crying child to attend to or something. At least that is my excuse. ;)

I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
