Sydney Golden Wattle שיטה כחלחלה

I think this is the Golden Wattle (Acacia saligna), native to Australia. People sometimes erroneously call these trees "mimosa", but mimosas are from a different genus in the same family. According to the Ministry of the Environment web site, this tree was brought to Israel in the 1920's to help with sand dune stablization and for forestation.
