mimosa leaves

Mimosa trees have such delicate leaves. Enlarge the pictures to see a little more detail. This tree came up in my backyard over 15 yrs ago. I really never thought it would last this long because the roots are in the side of the creek. A bit unstable looking but still it stands tall and firm.

Have a great week.


  1. Enlarged, the lower picture is an especial delight.

  2. The photos almost look like ink drawings. Very nice!

  3. Mimosa's are one of my favorite trees. We had them in the yard as a kid and I always thought the flowers reminded me of fluffy pink ballarina skirts.

  4. Mimosa's are such a beautiful tree, I haven't seen them outside of the south and I sort of miss them. Those little pink blooms are so pretty.

    PS, Way too much going on over the weekend, once again I am running behind on visits.
