National Wattle Day
Today is National Wattle Day - the first day of Spring.
And for those who may not be aware, the Wattle is Australia's national floral emblem and it appears on our Coat of Arms.
Whilst I am a fan of wattle - it looks so cheerful and happy at the end of winter - my husband can't stand it as it gives him hayfever (it has a very distinct smell). So he won't be celebrating Wattle Day!!
