  5. I've never seen a wattle tree before. It is so pretty. Seems strange that you are blooming there and we are heading into fall.

  8. So it is Spring time there. That is a beautiful tree. I've never seen one before.
    Our temperatures have become a wee bit milder in the last week or so, we'll be entering Autumn Soon.

  11. I love the wattle. It is the sign for sping. Over here the leaves will soon be red and fall down.

  16. Loved the pictures of the wattle -- I had never heard of this tree. It reminds me of a tree that blooms here in the spring -- I'll try to find a picture of it to share with you.
    You are looking forward to spring and I am dreaming of fall and some cool weather! We did get rain today, compliments of tropical storm Hermine.
    It made land far south of us but brought in moisture from the gulf. Still more rain expected the rest of the week.
