Mellow Yellow Monday #16

My cousin took this photo near Canberra, Australia last September. I love how the yellow frames the photo. Not sure what kind of tree that is - anyone know? (Click on the photo for a closer look).

I love this stunning yellow mimosas! Never was able to find out about all remarkable plant species, but I'm learning. Have a great week, everyone :)

It's a golden wattle. Trust me, I'm Australian :)

Drowsey Monkey said...

Tracey & Huffle - Oh yes - after googling Golden Wattle I think you are right! LOL Altho it did look like mimosa as well.

But seeing how you're Australian ... I'll trust ya ;)

Ribbon said...

I'm pretty sure that it's a golden wattle... I'm Aussie too.
It's my first time here to play mellow yellow monday and I'm looking forward to it :-)

best wishes Ribbon

Mimosa:Champagne and orange juice. Yup looks right to me.
Either way it is yummy looking. Thanks again for having us over.

Bonnie Bonsai said...

That's one of the varieties of a wattle tree.(www.woollahra.nsw.gov.au/.../17596/image233.jpg)

JoyD said...

The scenery is so beautiful and framed by the yellow makes it extra special. Well... it is officially Monday here!

Ladynred said...

It's beautiful yellow tree!

What a lovely place. I have never seen a tree like that.

I hope that my entry this week will have everyone smiling.

Olga, the Traveling Bra said...

I thought they were yellow wine grapes too Speedy! HAPPY BIRTHDAY by the way! :)

2sweetnsaxy said...

How pretty with all those bright, fuzzy flowers on it. The photo itself is lovely. It looks like it should be a label for a bottle of wine.
:-)

liza said...

Greyscale Territory said...

The wattle is stunning when edging roadways! It seems trimmed with gold! This is definitely a wattle! I'm Australian too!

Tina said...

Tammy said...

What a beautiful picture!

Debo Hobo said...

I'm a first time participant in Mellow Yello Monday. It was fun, never realized how much yellow there is in this great big world of ours.

I look forward to reader all the other or at least most of the other participant's blogs as well. :O

LuLo Designs/Blue Eyed Tango said...

This is gorgeous! Great photo! Thanks for hosting MYM!

Carol said...

Nice shot...love the framing...sorry #62 is a bad link, I don't know if you can delete it....

happyone said...

I don't know what kind of tree it is but it adds beauty to an already beautiful scene.
Great photo!!

Dianne said...

I love this scene! Plus it makes me want to have a Mimosa ;)

Mr Linky appears to be hiding from me at the moment
I'm up at - http://hihidipi.blogspot.com/

I'll check back later :)

VioletSky said...

Kinda makes me want to go to Canberra to see it live.

Debo Hobo said...

Well I visited and I commented on all the links that allow comments.

I noticed some of the blogs listed only allow comments from certain users. I'm not a Google or OpenID user so I really felt left out. :(

nature ramblings said...

I agree on the comment above. I can't leave comments on a lot of blogs either. I just thought it was because I use a Mac computer. They are a little weird and are left out on a lot of things. Anyway, your photo is beautiful. The framing is just perfect. Can't get much better than that. Happy Monday and thanks for the meme, I really enjoy it.

prkl said...

you're right there, it's nice framing. usually yellow flowas are down in the photos. nice change. happy MYM! :)

Daisy said...

Lovely choice, Drowsey! Happy Monday to you! :D

Nicole said...

That shot is totally awesome!
I love that yellow frame :D

boliyou said...

That's a great shot. The framing really makes the picture.

Connie said...

IT does have beautiful flowers.

Danielle said...

How wonderful! It almost looks like a million little yellow bees clinging to the tree. Love it.

Shey said...

Great scenic photo. Very relaxing to the eyes and mind.

:)

earthtoholly said...

Yes, those flowers do frame it nicely. Haven't seen anything like that here in Virginia, USA. Very interesting though...and kinda looks like it could be pesky during hayfever season! Very nice photo!

Drowsey Monkey said...

For those commenting about commenting - yes I know it is frustrating when some people partake in these memes and then make it complicated to comment! lol - I don't get that.

Moon-Writer said...

I do not have a clue what kind of tree that is, but I DO know it is BEAUTIFUL. I too love the framing. Again, Thanks for this meme!

Lilli & Nevada said...
