Debbie, beautiful blooms.
Those are so beautiful.The bees really love them too as I do.
I'm confused. Shouldn't thishave gone into the gallery?
I just looked at all your photos in the Members Gallery and it looks like you got the process figured out for posting in the forums.
I especially like that pink wattle flower. I brought some seeds home with me from there, but they did not germinate here. What a shame that was. I have seen some lovely wattles there.
Toni, thanks for the suggestion about posting onto a members forum.
is the wattle in the family of the eucalyptus?
Sjoerd I can't find any reference to what it might be. I had thought it was a wattle, but I've just been looking up pink flowering gum tree, and the flowers look the same, or similar, but mine face downwards, and the ones on the net all seem to look towards the sky. I'm just not sure. Maybe plantstew might know?
I have seen that tree in a couple of different colours. I have some slides of them. I enjoyed those types of trees so much when I was there...and what about those big fruit bats that come to visit in the evenings!
I am Australian and would like to make a correction to your labeling. The flower you have called pink wattle is misnamed. It is eucalyptus (gum tree) blossom. It is nothing like wattle blossom. Except for very rare examples (I have only ever seen one exception - Acacia leprosa 'Scarlet Blaze'), wattle comes in shades of yellow. In fact if it is not yellow it is unlikely to be wattle.
Hi Maya, thanks for your help.
