time of the season

welcome back wattle!
I at her favourite drawing spot
a little study
 seed pods are popping, little soft flowers in yellows, pinks and reds are bursting out and we are collecting them along our way.

Hasn't the wattle been glorious. The up side of my two-hour commute to work is the train passes through a lot of bushland and there is a grand amount of wattle in flower. I am off to the native tubestock place this weekend to see whether I can't find what I am looking for. I've nurtured a wattle from tube stock for a couple of years and it's flowering for the first time this year.
Thos drawings look great. I hope you scan them and show us - maybe they'll make a great family Christmas card.

so pretty that smell so childhood; i noticed poppies out in the shops this week too. It was lovely to see you at our show; sorry if I was scatty! I can't wait to see my first yellow wattle blossoms this year even if they make my nose itch and my eyes water...pain for beauty!

How I love wattle season! It doesn't matter how far I am from a flowering tree I swear I can smell it everywhere...and feel that teasing excitement of impending Spring! Beautiful photo's.

Ah there is something uplifting about bright yellow flowers in winter - wattle, daffodils and sour sob all as beautiful as each other!
