Fragrant!


The acacia trees are blooming right now and sending their sweet aroma all over.  I know that some people don't like the smell of acacia blooms and some are even allergic to them but, I love the scent.



It's a good thing because I'm seeing (and smelling) them everywhere I go.

Eye candy.

Lois Anne was first pregnant when we lived in Scottsdale. The scent of orange blossoms made her nauseous. It was not a happy time for we were inundated with the scent of orange blossoms. I don't think acacia blossoms bothered her at all.

Really vibrant color! I have never been around an acadia tree.

I'm with you Sharon, I love that sweet smell of spring, I used to have an acacia tree in my garden and it was a delight to walk out in the morning. I think it must have got too big! I'm really enjoying your floral images!

Aha! So that IS similar to the yellow trees I've seen here. I see what you mean! I think ours are a bit different, though -- maybe a slightly different species.

The trees are all dressed up for spring!

That is gorgeous, Sharon! I don't think we have them here but definitely not today because it is really cold again!

What was all that talk years ago about smell-o-vision? Now's the time.

It is a lovely tree. I have just had a look back over your recent postings. Every day has offered a wonderful collection of floral color.

Stopped by the Desert Botanical Garden on your recommendation and enjoyed the color upclose and personal

Acacia were very common in southern Africa, and I visited at many different times of the year, but I never saw an acacia in bloom. Fascinating!
