    Lovely capture, Joy! Love the hints of sunlight poking through the seed pods. I did not realize that the Acacia tree in my yard is also the Wattle Tree-or at least a variety of it (same flowers and seed pods) Sandy

  • Thanks Sandy, yes that’s correct. Some varieties can live for a long time but others only 3-5 years. We had two growing our garden and when they got to five years old they just fell out of the ground. We stopped trying to grow them after that. By the way you will not need to feed or water them. They are a very hearty tree.

    I love the way the light highlights the curves of these wonderful seedpods! These are actually familiar because I once came upon a lot of them on the perimeter road at my favorite botanical garden and asked the gardeners what they were. :)

  • Thanks Celeste, for some reason the ones on this tree was growing all curled. Not like the other one you saw in flickr. (Usually our Summer is a dry heat but over the last few years we have become a lot more humid. Today is very humid) Our weather is getting more like Queensland. I much prefer dry heat but better still below 25C.
