Golden bud burst

by Patrick Kavanagh

I always find the start of the flowering of Golden Wattles exhilarating – the remarkable burst of colour in our bush and the start of the magnificent procession of flowering. It also seems to mark the proliferation of life that depends on this flowering. A close look at these beautiful buds and flowers gives a glimpse of how many small lifeforms thrive on them.
