A note of hope
Hello lovely, I’m just here longing for the warmth of spring, frolicking amongst the flowers blossoming across the landscape. In the garden the Acacia tree is flowering sweet clusters of gold, it’s bringing a needed ray of sunshine to this dreary cold winter. In the studio I have created an eclectic display on the vintage sideboard to bring a delightful burst of vibrant yellow to the space, a beautiful reminder everyday that a new season is on its way!
I feel true adoration for this devine and intricate evergreen tree and shrub, native to Australia and Africa and one of the few flowering plants that can be found across the world. In Australia the Acacia gold flower is their floral symbol and spring is announced by the first flowering. I have loved researching its heart warming historic story and the deep meaning and symbolism it holds.
The Flowering Acacia
Over the bending boughs
Of the acacia
Falls a shower
Of golden light,
Like the song of sun-rains.— Lucy Eddy
The Ancient Acacia Represents: Renewal, Fortitude and Pureness.
