Bouquets of Spring

On the river side of our property we have a finger of land that has a pathway lined by trees and it stretches towards and overlooks the Waikato River.

It is a short distance from our house and yet if you walk to end of the pathway you become surrounded by trees and it is almost like being in another place altogether.

At the moment you can stop and listen to the birds of spring and sense the flow of the river below - so peaceful and quiet, it is always a pleasure to spend a few minutes in this part of the garden.

For a while now one of the trees at the end of the pathway has been in blossom with a lovely soft yellow glow. The yellow can be seen at the centre back in this image.

Yesterday I went for a wander down the pathway to investigate the yellow blossom and broke off one of the branches.

I have no idea what it is, possibly wattle, but it seemed a shame to have it on its own so I went for a wander through the rest of our garden.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that from various parts of the garden and our yellow blossom became part of a spring bouquet for our home.
