Showiest tree on the block

Showiest tree on the block (at least this week) is Acacia baileyana, commonly called Bailey Acacia. This time of year, when little is in bloom in our garden our Acacia trees puts on a beautiful show. The tree explodes with clusters of small, ball-shaped, yellow flowers overnight. The sulphur sprays are a nice contract to the grey winter skies.Usually, I don't care for yellow flowers, but these looks great in the landscape in the winter when we could use a pop of color.
