I noticed today the Mimosa trees are blooming. I spent many hours playing under one in our backyard when I was a little girl. I thought it was the coolest thing to watch it at dusk and see the leaves fold up. The pink blossoms are fascinating as well and I love how they remind me of a tropical rain forest. Oh, they too grow wild here, springing up everywhere and very hardy determined trees as long as we let them choose where to sprout. We did once try to transplant one with no success so now we just let them have their way. I don't have much of a green thumb so I'm very blessed that all these beautiful plants volunteer their presence around our place.
