Sorry about the dreadful photo quality. Thanks for the ID.

Our place is covered in the stuff so it wasn't hard to recognise even out of focus. Although tiny those flowers exude a powerful smell at this time of year, which comes wafting up out of our gullies.

PS Far from being a wattle, it is actually most closely related to violets!
