The wattles are starting to come out. I always know that we are just passing the the middle of winter when the gardens, the road verges and the bush is punctuated with startling yellow. It's gorgeous. Acacias form a huge botanical family with many growth habits but for me the tiny yellow pom-poms are just beautiful.
