Wednesday Flowers Wattle and Wallabies

Wednesday flowers are smaller well .75 " fussy cut. I'm having fun with the size and they seem to work very well to create new patterns.
The small yellow blooms are wattle. Each bloom is about the size of a pearl headed pin. DGS picked these and brought them home form the park today.
A trip to a local native animal reserve where feeding the wallabies is a highlight.

DH or Gramap trying to encourage GS Cadel to pet the wallaby.


Cadel is getting closer but still keeping his hands to himself. The wallabies enjoy the ice cream cone more than the grain it holds.




Cadel is getting braver but this wallaby isn't letting anyone take away her treat. Can you see the joey in her pouch?
No



Here's a better view of a small joey. Not much fur yet. When the mother leans down to graze the baby (joey) will lean out of the pouch and graze also.
A great visit was had by all.
I hope you are all enjoying your stitching or whatever else comes your way this week. Terry

Glad you had a fun day with Cadel and the wallabies. I have never seen them that close before. Such fun. Lovely hexie flowers and the wattle is my favorite Australian flower. I can see where Australia gets the yellow and green from - Thanks for a lovely post - Hugs Nat
