Self-sown, but none the worse for that

An unanticipated pleasure

This is the wattle I was on my way to photograph when the crash-landing cuckoo interrupted proceedings. It is a self-sown tree just inside the front fence which somehow avoided the weeder’s grasp long enough to be allowed remain and grow – slightly sideways – and thrive. We don’t know its lineage (and would welcome expert advice) but any tree that can put on displays like this is truly welcome.
