Morning Surprise Rabbits Foot Acacia

This mornings surprise with this Rabbits foot Acacia in bloom.image


Pretty, but that looks like the bloom of Dichrostachys cinerea

Dichrostachys cinerea, known as sicklebush, Bell mimosa, Chinese lantern tree or Kalahari Christmas tree (South Africa), is a legume of the genus Dichrostachys in the Fabaceae family.

EDIT TO ADD: Apologies. “Rabbit’s foot acacia” is yet another screwed up common name. This is both a Dichrostachys AND an Acacia. Aren’t common names fun?:face_with_symbols_over_mouth:
