Once warm weather arrives, our sweet acacia trees in our yard burst into bloom! The blossoms have a very sweet smell, hence their name! A tiny bird likes to visit them, I'm sure to get the nectar. We have several of them that have naturalized on their own and now have about a dozen growing in our yard. The ones on the west provide a nice shade canopy for us in the summer.
