Fuzzy yellow tree

We’ve no idea what type of tree this is, but Mama and I enjoyed photographing these fuzzy yellow flowers while on our neighborhood walk this afternoon.

Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was a fabulously fuzzy-looking yellow flowering tree! Does anyone know what it is? (We don’t think it is Acacia, since we’re both very allergic to that.) What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!

Day 22 of 365. And Now Totaling 2,214 Days In A Row. Here’s the first 366 and the following 365, as well as year three, year four, and year five, and year six of #OneGoodThing Daily!

On this day…

    • Everywhere we’ve ever lived my entire life, a neighbor has had a giant acacia tree. Both Mama and I dread the flowering season as we have terrible reactions to it. It’s a shame cause I always think it looks pretty—from a distance!!!

  1. Wiki: Acacia pycnantha, most commonly known as the golden wattle, is a tree of the family Fabaceae native to southeastern Australia. It grows to a height of 8 m (26 ft) and has phyllodes (flattened leaf stalks) instead of true leaves. Sickle-shaped, these are between 9 and 15 cm (3+1⁄2 and 6 in) long, and 1–3.5 cm (1⁄2–1+1⁄2 in) wide. The profuse fragrant, golden flowers appear in late winter and spring, followed by long seed pods. Plants are cross-pollinated by several species of honeyeater and thornbill, which visit nectaries on the phyllodes and brush against flowers, transferring pollen between them. An understorey plant in eucalyptus forest, it is found from southern New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, through Victoria and into southeastern South Australia.
    Maybe you didn’t get close enough to get an allergic reaction, or maybe you’re no longer allergic to it, or maybe you are allergic to something else and wrongly attributed it to the acacia.

    • I actually did start to have an allergic reaction and was only barely able to stop long enough to photograph and not research. But it looks different from the typical acacia we see here. And our neighbor’s acacia is not yet in bloom–thankfully! They’re pretty, but they’re murder on my sinuses! Thank you for sharing, Bert!
