“Nature looks dead in winter because her life is gathered into her heart.
She withers the plant down to the root that she may grow up again fairer and stronger”
~ Hugh Macmillan
Feeling the need for a breath of fresh air we took a wander along the George V Memorial Walk last week to see what, if anything, was in flower. One hundred photos proved there was a lot to love: not only flowers, but bright new foliage and sublime textures.
The header photograph is of a very pretty wattle which has fabulous almost triangular paired leaves, and really tiny flowers. I have often seen this interesting tree before, but never in flower and wondered what it was: a Gum? a Wattle? This week it was flowering beautifully – a golden cloud arching over the track and I think it is Acacia pravissima / Wedge-Leaved Wattle
