Happiness as Anarchy #106: Wattle blossom

The wattles are blooming in almost fluorescent yellow in unexpected places. As well as gardens and parkland, where you would expect to find attractive plants, they are waving their flag from train yards, car parks and abandoned lots. And they have the spotlight all to themselves – wattles bloom when not much else does, making them appear even more  vibrant and spectacular.
