Here is the wattle emblem of our land
you can stick it in a bottle
or hold it in your hand. Bruce (Monty Python).
The driveway on the country estate was lined with wattle trees which gave a splendid display of yellow as winter faded. They are short lived trees and the seasonally gaudy phase of their existence came to an end ten years or so ago.
I replanted with Red Ironbark which are coming along nicely. The wattles were allowed to stand proud but leafless, nice perches and productive of insects. My feathered friends have appreciated them.
It was windy today …
We had a visitor at the time. They discovered the wreckage blocking the drive as they tried to leave.
