It’s Wattle Time!

It’s Wattle time, here in Sydney, Australia.

In truth, there are species of Wattle out where I live almost every month of the year, but right now, it’s more than normally plentiful.

Here’s a photo of one that grows near the Georges River.2013_0902imagefacebook0113

Australian Bushland Scene

27 Dec

I found this photograph in my files, taken some time ago in the local bushland park. It prominently shows a beautiful Banksia in abundant flower, and in the background, a delightful Wattle also in bloom.

Australian wildflowers must surely rank high on the list of beautiful plants.

Lately, one of the chief joys of walking (or driving) around our local bushland park has been the sight of Wattle in bloom. There has been a wonderful procession of beautiful species. This is one of the loveliest. It’s called Sydney Golden Wattle, (Acacia longiflora).

I love reflections. There’s something calming and appealing about them.

In this photograph, one can see boat-sheds and Wattle in bloom, all reflected on the river.

As I drove around the local park today, i remarked to Ron on the Wattle. It’s certainly been a very good year…

For months on end, there have been eye-catching displays as the various species come into bloom.

Here’s one of the most showy types.

I love to walk in the Australian bushland. And so I count my blessings that, despite living in suburbia,  I live so near to  a beautiful, unspoilt area that boasts many different varieties of Wattle and Eucalyptus, to name just two.

I hope that you like this snapshot taken there.

Golden Wattle

Right now, some of  the Golden Wattles are starting to fade..

Interestingly, Wattle has a wide variety of species, and overall a long flowering season.

Enjoy!
