Acacia Dealbata is a very common roadside tree in Tasmania. This example is a smaller one.
Native to NSW, Victoria and Tasmania we get to see plenty of them. Very nice when in full flower and the smell is of Spring – although a bit early really. The tree grows very quickly and can reach 30 metres but most by the roadside are of large shrub height. It’s timber is used for furniture making and for veneers. Like most Acacias it doesn’t live that long. 90 years would be a very old one!
What’s been happening? Well, like Dylan at the Newport Jazz Festival – I have “gone electric”. You can read all about it HERE. With a further instalment working out what to do with my annual challenge to self HERE
Although it is only August it does feel a bit spring-like around the middle of the day. Last week I spotted a Hare having a run around in a paddock and Colin’s single Yellow-Throat Honeyeater has found a friend. It’s very promising!
