Wattle Day

A question was mentioned by people for the winter bloom plant Wattle, why 1st Sept. is named as Wattle Day, not 1st August?

Well, I just went to Gatton National Park yesterday, it seems the bush wattle is just blooming as my backyard wattle tree.  They belong to the same variety. While they keep a blooming season as long as one to two weeks, local silver wattle tree finishes blooming days shorter.  The silver wattle blooms in the winter days, which is almost one month earlier than bush wattle considering they both grow in the same area of Gatton.

Other great views to see is the blooming Grevillea, Banksia, Golden Penda, creeping pigface sand plant (Carpobrotus glaucescens), Climbing Jasmine, creeping Myoporum, Purple Pea Bush.

I shall take a morning out tomorrow to take photos.

Here comes the photos.
