Wattle I eat now?

IMG_1705

Not sure why this Australian native wattle is flowering now – think the warm weather has tricked it into flowering.  Had a bit of a munch but the taste was absolutely disgusting.  Went back to eating grass…

      Good to know it’s more widespread then. Poor things don’t know if they’re coming or going.

    I don’t know wattle. Grass is good tho.

      Wattle is a tree/bush and it’s Australia’s national emblem. Most people hate it though as the fine pollen brings on terrible sinus problems and allergies!

    The one in our backyard is flowering too. Does it get stuck in your teeth or on your tongue? Doesn’t seem that appealing Ruby. Your on your own on that one.

      It’s on my tongue and up my nose – very sneezy. Will give up and go back to grass 🙂

        Oh, you don’t have to try Ruby. You are the cutest! 😀

    I’d stick to the grass too!

    I only eat grass before I turn into a carnivore fountain :o)

    Wattle looks a bit like our goldenrod…I prefer the new young grass shoots still wet with morning dew…yum

      Golly you’re brave – I’ve gone back to wet grass myself this morning 🙂

    Aaah… Just look at that face – how could you have ever thought Ruby was more of a chore than a joy?

    • rubytheblacklabrador / Aug 12 2013 2:46 pm

      She is pretty gorgeous I know but behind that lovely cute face is a savage heart and a brain disconnect!
