I needn't have worried after all. The Acacia dealbata (grown from seed brought back from Australia five years ago) is blooming (memories of Portugal) for the very first time and after its very harshest winter. OK. So not too many flowers but, flowers they very definitely are - way up there! Unfortunately, at over 30 feet, they are too high up to enjoy any scent but - as they say, "Owt's better than nowt!"
However, no takers in the robins architect designed homes - all too busy fighting each other at their dining table!
