Silver wattle or acacia dealbata, called mimosa in France, was imported into Europe in the 18th century from Tasmania in Australia. Its vibrant yellow is very much appreciated from January to March.

I’m stunned to see wattle. How wonderful and cheerful.
It certainly is pretty.
Shouldn’t you have saved this for 26 January ? 🙂
It’s nice to see it’s not a totally black an white world in January.
@Helen – the main variety is silver wattle though you do see other varieties. We have one in our little wood.
@William – I love wattle
@Susan – Drat! Why didn’t I think of that?
@Stuart – The snow’s gone, I’m afraid. Didn’t last long so there isn’t much white.
