Acacia Tree Changes Attire From Yellow Flowers To Golden Seed Pods

Here's a follow up on the Blooming Acacia Tree posts.

It has now developed seed pods which dried fairly quickly. We've been having a heat wave so summer is off to a crackling start here in So Cal.

The seed pods are about 2 or 3 inches long and have bumps over the seeds.

They turn a deep golden brown color. They make a pretty contrast against the light green leaves and the golden yellow branches.

Little flocks of sparrows show up when the seeds are just right and cover the tree chirping and shaking branches then disappear in an instant.

Squirrels seem to like these too. And there is now a carpet of deep gold pod shells on the path under the tree.
