See You In The Spring – Weekly Photo Challenge – Spring
Australians always know that Spring is on the way when the wattle trees start to bloom.
While Acacia pycnantha, the golden wattle, is Australia’s national floral emblem, there are 959 other varieties of wattle growing in all parts of the country.
I found this tree covered with fluffy yellow blossoms at Richmond in Tasmania.
Some people believe their Spring time allergies are caused by the pollen from wattle. I don’t know if that’s true.
