The Acacia (or Wattle) is Australia’s National Floral emblem which flowers in late winter with glorious golden scented blooms. The first day of Spring (September 1st) is officially Wattle Day. Yet, as Wikipedia points out, this ancient flora has been revered for millennia…

  5. Awesome picture of the blooming acacia … I love that tree … in my country they are however not so full of blossoms as on your side of the world. And yes MMT it looks like the Acacia tries to outshine the sun. Thank you JRB for sharing this haiku set with us … I have learned again something more about nature.
