Australia's acacia in bloom
The sweet-smelling, pretty, lemon yellow flowers on these shrubs and trees truly lifts the spirits! It is a spectacular sight to see whole trees laden with them.
Unsure if this is one of our winter flowering species or a spring flowering one, blooming early. (I gather that up to a third of our nearly 1000 species of wattle will flower in winter). We have a National Wattle Day on September 1st, the first day of spring.
The Acacia genus, (which includes all the wattles), is the biggest group of trees and shrubs in Australia, topping even the eucalypts in diversity.
