    We were travelling to the Gold Coast, QLD, yesterday & saw that the roadside golden wattle - acacia pycnantha - , Australia's floral emblem, has reflowered, in its normal month for its beautiful display. The trees were in flower, wherever it was planted along the roadsides, all the way from north of Ballina to the Gold Coast, QLD.

    It had already flowered in June, at the beginning of winter, so it was a surprise to see it in bloom again. No wonder my hayfever is bugging me.

    The net fencing, seen on the left, travels for many kilometres along both sides of the Pacific Highway. It is designed to stop koalas, (especially the amorous, love-sick males who travel looking for the territorial females), from sauntering onto the highway & getting squished.
