More pea flowers

The drive through the national park at Glenbrook is very pretty at the moment. The forest understory is dotted with golden yellow pea flowers (like those I showed in late August), pale yellow wattle and every now and then these larger flowers. I've figured out the name of this one.

Words to walk with:
From Spring, the Sweet Spring by Thomas Nashe
"Spring, the sweet spring, is the year's pleasant king,
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!"
