Wattle Day by KazM

This is a card to celebrate Australia’s National Floral Emblem
For more info see

National Wattle Day was on 1 September but local celebrations vary according to local circumstances

Song: Wattle Day Song
We’re proud to wear the Green and Gold,
Live the Spirit of Australia,
We welcome Spring on Wattle Day,
From coast to coast, let’s all say G’Day.
The wattle lies dormant through winter months,
Building her strength for the Spring to come,
When life bursts forth in golden sprays,
Let’s get together ‘round Australia and say….
At the drop of a hat we’ll celebrate,
Go out in the bush with our BBQ plate,
If someone’s in need, we’ll help them out,
Let’s get together ’round Australia and shout….
The wattle shows a way we can live our lives,
An expression of hope, through fire and flood it thrives,
By working together we can beat the odds,
Aussie friendship and courage what more could we want….

I did not write the words they go with the pic
(but I am glad to acknowledge David Raff & Jan Raff ©1999 as authors.)

Hope you enjoy this celebratory card.
More than 50 branches in the pic.

I am life time doodler, who has decided that it is time to see if anyone else likes my art. Here’s hoping!

I have had a go at writing, drawing, painting, graphic design, photography and digital creation & manipulation. Hope you enjoy my work. All encouragement appreciated.

I love helping RB newbies and sharing the hosting of a few groups.

    Gorgeous KazM and fantastic win for the Opals – we had another wattle rhyme when I was a kid,

    The emblem of our land
    You can put it in a bottle
    or hold it in your hand

  • I do not remember a rhyme like this, so thank you for the gift of it and you much appreciated comment :+}

    Hi KazM,

    I like your cards, but as the co-writer of the Wattle Day Song with my wife Jan, we would like you to acknowledge our authorship if you are going to continue to use part or all of our poem/song rather than a reference to the general wattle day website. You can reply to me at my hotmail address: djact2020@hotmail.com.
