And All I Have to do is Click!
So, in honour of World Photography Day (yesterday), that’s exactly what I did. Please enjoy (some of) the photos I took of Australia’s National Floral Emblem.
But these are just a few of the many, many varieties of the Acacia species of plants. I took all of these photos along the road where I’ve been walking each morning, and over the last week I’ve noticed there are blooms in all stages. Some are in their glory, others are now dying, and more still are yet to bloom.
I even think the wattle blooms look stunning in black and white.
(Just click to enlarge and have a better look.)
I’ve never seen so many wattles in one place before. They line the streets, they frame the highway, they are in people’s front yards and in the their back yards. They are everywhere and the blooms truly are stunning, adding a beautiful splash of colour during winter.
Seeing wattle like this makes me realise how worthy the Golden Wattle is of being our national floral emblem. Although, I have to wait until we’re further south to actually see a Golden Wattle, I just hope it’s still flowering when we get there.
Why not tell me what you think of the wattle?
