Ideas & Inspirations No3. Acacia

Acacia (Wattle): is another beautiful Australian native that comes in a variety of shapes & sizes & is a particular favourite of mine.

The cheerful yellow flowers are easily recognisable, but it’s the foliage that I find most fascinating – ranging from round, soft, silvery greys… to sparse, spiky olive green branches… to bright green fern-like stems.

My Freeform Handbag ‘Acacia’ came into being one winter when these lovely shrubs were in full bloom….
