Botany picture #96: Acacia boormanii

Acacia boormanii (Fabaceae), ACT, 2013. Here in south-eastern Australia, the 'wattles' (genus Acacia) herald spring. The landscape is turning yellow, and bees are getting busy on them. This species is native further south in the mountains of New South Wales and Victoria but has been widely planted as an ornamental.
