Spring is trying

Today like many before (that's if it isn't raining) is grey and damp with a bitterly cold wind blowing but still Spring is on it's way






Hanging on from the Winter.

Good to get the official nod from Mother Nature. Here it is Silver Wattle blossom that I look forward to in late winter.

I'm not sure if this is a 'type/ variety' anymore. They cross pollinate at a whim and self seed everywhere. If you have more than one variety/colour they produce a completely random mix of new plants.

Very easy to look after, put up with any conditions and even survive the rampaging poultry. My kind of plant
