Hardly a Hobby or Pastimes...

Post by Who2 »

Gardening one of the jobs that 'must be done. I'm a crap gardener if it grows great,
if it dies buy something else.
'Life's to short...

Anyhow Aida bought 4 shrubs from the shrubbery planted them, I said "they wont grow there but there looks ok!
6 months later 2 died 1 grew....

Question ? does anyone know what it is ? other than a tree.

Pic1. A tree..
behind and soon to 'cover the whole of our village, is Hatusu's present of 10 years ago. Winter flowering Jasmin.
Pic 2: is of the seed.
Pic 3: is one of Helen's great photo's up in my hallway.

It looks a lot like Mimosa, or a species of Wattle.

I have just been reliably informed it's called "Sagara Sour Seharawi, any the wiser ?
But a clue is, that it is grown down the main west bank roads.... 8)
Ps: Is that like daub and wattle..?
Pss: Doesn't look like a Mimosa and typing in wattle came up with this.....
