On the 1st September each year we celebrate “Wattle Day”.
The tradition was born many years ago and has unfortunately slowly faded away. Of course we all still see the many wattles in flower at this time of year but we may not take the time to reflect on their place in our history.
Liz Hansman has updated her article on Wattle Day to include the “Wattle and Daub” method of early house construction. You can read about all things wattle by clicking here.
