Wattle flowers

Wattle trees are one of my favourite varieties of trees. It is the Australian floral emblem and it’s 1000 species can be found all over the country. They provide a spectacular contrast to the red dirt of the outback and are very popular in the gardens of our major cities.

For me, I love it when they start to flower towards the end of winter, signifying the season I don’t like is coming to an end.  The beautiful yellow flowers provide some cheer against the grey skies.
