Golden Wattle Blossom Yesterday was a dirth sort of day- it rained and rained and it was cold and miserable, and children cooped up inside. I added another gazillion french knots to the rockpool piece. It is close to done now. Today is sunny and walking around my garden I found one of the golden wattles already starting to bloom- hurrah bring on the spring, I can do without the winter weather. The otway region abounds with wattle- black wattle and white wattle- driving along the road to Colac in the height of spring is like driving past a wall of yellow.
