Wattle

(viewed 1305 times)
Bookmark and Share
In Australia there are about 900 different types of wattle. Some are very
large trees and some are low growing ground cover plants. Some have spikes
and others are lovely and soft. They all flower at different times of the
year and there's almost always something in bloom. All of them have a huge
amount of pollen and dust on them!!! Sometimes there's almost a cloud of
pollen around them. Still, they're beautiful and the national symbol of
Australia.When this particular wattle comes into bloom it's a clear sign that Spring
is not far away! I can't wait- apart from it being allergy season, I just
love all of the flowers and birds that come back into the garden.
