Late autumn comes alive with lovely yellow blooms of Manna Wattle (Acacia microbotrya). The common name comes from copious edible gum that exudes from stems. Those of you who remember the days when one had to lick postage stamps before placing them on envelopes, may not know that you were licking acacia gum (called gum Arabic). I have talked to Noongars who used to chew the gum as kids. There is no taste and the practice is not recommended for those with dentures (exceptionally sticky).
I suggest that you stop and have a look at the gum (in Foxes lair of course!), it can be quite beautiful.
