Mellow Yellow Monday #18

This week's post is up early - I'm away all day Sunday so I thought it would be better to post it early rather than late.

My cousin took this at Brown Mountain, NSW Australia. As always, I think his photography is just beautiful. Not sure what it is, it kind of looks like a dandelion but obviously it's not. If you know let me know, thanks! For a closer look click on the photo.

Whatever it is, I like it very much. Pretty one.

Martha said...

Cool- thanks for adding mine on the new one for this week :-)

lv2scpbk said...

Mine is up early too. There is a scheduled outage on blogspot coming up Monday, so thought I just post now.

I like the photo that you posted this week.

Greyscale Territory said...

Going by the closeup, the leaves in the background are a clue to what flower this is! I think it is commonly known as a black wattle. It is a fast growing tree and is one of the first wattles to flower in the Spring! Lovely shot!

Sally in WA said...

It sure it pretty, whatever kind it is.

Tracey and Huffle said...

It's wattle. Very common in these parts. The smell of them always reminds me of Spring.

Trace

Bonnie Bonsai said...

It's wattle! I like this form than other kinds. They look like round tassles.

Ladynred said...

I don't know what is but it's beautiful. I'm pretty sure Australian knows its name.

Judy said...

I have never seen that before...It's very pretty.

Ribbon said...

The flower certainly looks like Wattle... but the foliage looks more like fern fronds.
It's got me confused :-)

Happy Mellow Yellow Monday...
Best wishes
Ribbon

storyteller said...

I didn't know what it was until I read the comments. I'm delighted to learn it's Wattle and think it's lovely.
Hugs and blessings,

Libby Murphy said...

Hope you enjoy a bright and sunny Mellow Yellow Monday! We've had so much rain here on three consecutive Mondays, that this has been the only bright spot amidst gloomy weather.
Happy Twirls

Karen said...

It's called 'Sunshine Wattle', I believe.

Such pretty yellow flowers..

Moon-Writer said...

I have never heard of a wattle but it sounds like your readers know. I do know that it is awfully pretty and delicate. Nice picture. Do those little yellow flowers fall apart when they are touched? Or are they hardy? Looks like I need to Google wattle. LOL!!!

liza said...

I am dumb when it comes to naming flowers, but these sure are lovely. Happy MYM.

Amo molto questa pianta, che in Italia si chiama " Mimosa ".-
Da mio marito me la sono fatta piantare una davanti alla casa.-

The Explorer said...

Hi, just dropping by.

I made mistakes on the link. Please remove my first entry at no#30. I had new entry at no#36. Apology for mistake.

2sweetnsaxy said...

I don't know what it is but it does look like a dandelion.
:-) My compliments to your cousin.

Ian Sengco said...

I also have a flower as my first entry here in Mellow Yellow Monday.

Tina said...

Tammy said...

That's so pretty!

Sue said...

Those are pretty. I posted some flowers too that are similar, but I think different then yours. I'm not sure what the ones I posted are called either - lol.

happyone said...

The yellow flowers look so pretty next to the green of the tree!

It looks like the flower is growing from some sort of evergreen tree. Very interesting I hope someone knows what it is and shares.

Thanks for all who knew the name of the flower too :)

Hope you're enjoying Mellow Yellow as much as I am!
