Golden Wattle

About 6 week ago I started noticing round yellow flowers blooming on mid-size bush trees in Fred Caterson Reserve (we do jogging there every morning). Every other day more and more of them appeared and finally the whole track was surrounded by beautiful yellow sea of fluffy flower-balls.I had no idea what’s the name of the tree, but already filed it as one of my favorites.

Now, luckily, I know it’s a “Golden Wattle” – the official Australian floral emblem, which you can see at the Coat of Arms.

I made a few photos of Golden Wattle and I hope you’d share my excitement – it’s really one of the prettiest plants:
