TODAY'S FLOWERS - Flinders Ranges Wattle


Acacia iteaphilla, commonly called Flinders Ranges Wattle,
is one of those wonderful plants that bloom in winter
with a delicately sweet scent.


This one we planted along the road verge next to one of our 
dams some 18 years ago and it performs beautifully 
every year.


It is so nice to do just garden posts for a while,
after all, there is so much in a simple garden to give one joy

  11. I agree that it is lovely to post flowers and gardens. --

    Winter blooms are real treasures, especially when they're perennials and when they have a lovely fragrance.

    I forgot in my comment on the post below to say that the ladybug delighted me too!

  12. Ah Arija you have captured the colour of the wattle perfectly - I wish they'd use a softer lemon and sage green to represent our national colours, not the garish block yellow and dark green we are stuck with - it always grates on me when I see it featured on uniforms and flags, but guess that's the finickity artist in me, my mind has never been sports-set.
    I'd better get off my soap boxbefore I start on our stuffy national anthem without even a hint of didgeridoo featured!!
