Better Than Cherry Blossoms

While I do understand the national passion for cherry blossoms I personally prefer acacia. Its blooming this week and the fragrance sweetens our walks. My only regret is that now that we are walking afternoons intstead of evenings we don't get the full benefit - somehow the fragrance seems to be strongest just after dusk.

Acacia flowers

No one plants these trees - they grow like weeds

The fragrance a long this road at dusk is heavenly!

The trees cover the mountains...

They are everywhere!
