I had to go out early to take Lu to one of her jobs. She was phoned in at short notice so didn’t have time to get there by bus. She likes Sunday work because they pay a Sunday penalty rate.
After that Deb and I went and had a leisurely Sunday brunch at Wild Wombat one of our favourite cafes.
I spent a couple of hours poking around Hurstbridge and Wattle Glen trying to get some decent photos of the wattle blooming in the bush.
As you can see patches of the bush around have turned gold with the blossom.
|"Black Wattle" (Possibly Acacia decurrens)|
- "wattle" is the common name for around 1,000 species of Acacia shrubs and trees that grow across Oz.
- It is a safe bet that at almost any time of year you won't have to got too far to find at least one species flowering
- they are called "wattle" because early settlers in Sydney used their branches to build "wattle and daub" walls.
