Although they are very pretty, acacia trees - as they are commonly referred to in these parts - do play havoc with my nasal passages, causing my body to produce copious amounts of antibody immunoglobulin E. I have hayfever.
Silver Wattle (Acacia dealbata) trees are blooming all around Vinoland right now. The flowers are so yellow and bountiful they can be seen at a great distance - everywhere. Vinomaker's current outdoor project is ridding Vinoland of a small forest of 15 foot tall Silver Wattle that have taken over the creek, a task also performed a mere 2 years ago. They grow like the proverbial weeds.
Hurry up Vinomaker, they're blooming awful!
