Ovens Wattle

The wattles are having a spectacular flowering at present. I photographed this one up on the Southern Tablelands and thought at the time it was a Black Wattle. When I looked at the photos and compared them with the references, I realised it is a much less common Ovens Wattle, found only in a relatively small area up that way. An image of the whole tree in the PiP.

This looks like mimosa. I love the smell of the flowers and the fact that the plant is touch sensitive.

Wattle is a rather ugly name for such a beautiful tree. We call them Acacias.
I understand though that people with allergies don't love them.
