I shall be joining Cathy of ‘Words and Herbs’ in her aim to bring cheer to the dark days of December. Back in 2017 (can it really be five years ago?) I had an Alternative Advent Calendar on my flower blog showing the wonderful flowers that were in bloom along the George V Memorial Walk in Hayle during November. I haven’t been able to get to the garden this November so I am going to reuse those beautiful blooms which hopefully will bring some brightness into our lives.
That’s an intriguing plant and one unknown to me. I have only ever seen photos of Acacia, but believe the flowers smell good. Thanks for sharing Jude!
I do have a photo of this one in flower, it is quite an amazing tree.
Wedge-Leaved Wattle is a great name! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete. x
Definitely wedge shaped!
I love that horizontal take.
It actually grows over the pathway like this!
Unfortunately I haven’t got the time to participate in Cathy’s nice meme this year, but your image really drew me in, it’s gorgeous. Almost like a honeycomb.
Yes, a fascinating view of this wattle. I was intrigued by it, and looks even better when in flower.
Lovely, I don’t think I’ve seen that plant before.
There are some rather unusual and interesting plants in the garden where this grows. One of the bonuses of Cornish weather.
A new-to-me and very interesting- looking plant. Love the idea of an alternative flower advent calendar – lot of work though!
I was amused by all the posh advent calendars aimed at adults which cost hundreds of ££ so decided to have an alternative run up to Christmas by posting a flower every day from the George V garden which has been a source of inspiration for several years. You can see the posts here if you fancy a peek.
Thanks for the link – these are lovely! (I particularly like the green ‘bottlebrush’.) I much prefer your version of an advent calendar – and it gives ideas for plants that may still be in flower for this time of year. 🙂
What a great name, Wedge-Leaved Wattle.
They remind me of an auger!
Nice! I don’t remember this one.
Well it is five years ago!
I meant I don’t recognise the plant. Nice though 😃
Oh, ok. It’s the only one I’ve seen.
This a new plant to me, it looks lovely.
Even better when in flower – see my reply to the other Cathy for a link.
Really enjoying your week of flowers
Thanks MM 🙂
