Two little gumnuts

Glorious gumnuts

Two little gumnuts, ringed in red,
a skirt of stamens, thin as thread.
Full of grace, and beauty too;
nature’s splendour, in full view.
(Michele Gierck)

Wattle, wattle, everywhere.

Wattle, wattle everywhere.

I’m working on a children’s book at the moment which is in rhyme. And now it seems that’s the way my brain is working–rollicking along in rhythm and rhyme.

Wattle, wattle, everywhere,
arching here and swaying there.
Yellow flowers so bold and bright,
in early morning golden light.
