30 minutes creativity per day… Day 4! Acacia dealbata

So, today I am investigating some wattle to go with the platypus – overhanging the water. Acacia dealbata (silver wattle) fits the bill!

I’ve had a look at how the leaves go together, and the blossoms are formed, and can see that the leaves in particular will lend themselves to stitching out on water-soluble fabric to create 3D leaves.

The blossoms are quite delicate, with lovely little “knobs” on the ends of each filament ☺

Definitely will be using this acacia with the platypus!
