Wattle: Icon of the Australian Bush

15 Aug

What could be more iconic that wattle?

Its yellow or golden ball-like flowers herald the approaching Spring.

So vibrant are these blooms that they stand out quite strikingly, even at a distance.

Interestingly, their leaves vary quite widely in colour and shape.

How lucky we are to witness these sights!
