Cootamundra-wattle-sunset

Even though our nights in the hills are quite cold down to freezing for the last few nights the flowers are starting to bloom first up is the Cootamundra wattle. Often regarded as a bit of a weed tree in Western Australia chiefly because it self sows. It can be seen in hedgerows running down smaller country roads and occasionally growing in clumps on the edge of the forest. The Cootamundra wattle is garden favorite because once the magnificent flush of flowers fade it takes its place in the garden with delightful silver grey fine feathery foliage. This was captured at sunset with the sun obscured behind the trees.
