This is the time of year when the
countryside and gardens
are on the brink of exploding into
a mass of golden yellow.
Two species of acacias come into full bloom
this time of year.
The first three images are…
Easily identified with their soft green leaves
and their smaller flower heads.
The next two images are Golden Wattles.
Golden Wattles have bigger flower heads and
long strappy leaves (my description).
In my opinion either one looks beautiful
when in full bloom.
This Red Wattle Bird gets in on the act…
…with a splash of yellow on its belly.
