A close look at some huisache flower globes
In contrast to the last view of a huisache, Acacia farnesiana, with a galaxy of flowers spread across it, here’s a close look at a few of the tree’s little flower globes. The typical diameter of a fully formed globe is from one-quarter to three-eighths of an inch (6mm–9mm). The flowers are very fragrant, but I still haven’t found a way to send you the scent over the Internet.
Like the previous picture, this one is from E. 51st St. on March 27th.
