Spring is definitely on the way!!


Wattle, originally uploaded by jsarcadia.

The wattle is out. This is our national floral emblem. Gives lots of people bad hayfever. Not me though. The flowers are a pest if you brush past them, they stick to everything.

Umm, I don't think it has a fragrance. I'll check when I get home and report in tomorrow. :)

It looks lovely, kinda a bummer that they stick to you.

You can always tell who's got wattle in their yard by the yellow tufts hanging off them. :)
