Acacia Tree Flowering Update



Here are a few photos of the Acacia after the flowers had fully opened up.  They are so beautiful!  Big, bright yellow flowers, and they smell heavenly!

Bees like the blooms too, I'm glad to have them around.  We like bees - they pollinate our crops.  Read more about the disturbing loss of bees here... 
Yes, they sting, but only if they see you as a threat. Roses have thorns and we don't ban them from our gardens do we?

Since the flowers are very small, they are attractive to beneficial insects like the tiny parasitic wasps that eat whiteflies, and the tiny native bees I see around.

I like how this photo turned out, I just love the yellow clouds of color.  I'm thinking of turning this into cards for my online store, what do you think?
