A promise of gold

Over the past few days the first blooms of Golden Wattle have tentatively appeared in the local bush. Travelling back from the Grampians towards Maryborough yesterday I noted quite a display of gold that hadn’t been there a few days earlier – it appears that flowering is slightly ahead over there, as it is further north. The first Golden Wattle flowers usually appear after the shortest day – the bush will be transformed to gold in coming weeks.
