Mimosa Time

Every May, like clockwork, the two Mimosa trees in the front yard burst into bloom. They will bloom for three to four weeks, perhaps more. They attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and of course the bees. But the scent is heavenly and pervasive. Every morning when I head out for work, the sun isn't quite up yet but the sweet scent is like a blanket thrown over the house. Other parts of the country have lilac bushes in bloom. We have mimosas. Fair trade.

Next time, the opening challenge to the Amazing Lace.

What amazing plants. I don't think I've ever seen a Mimosa (that wasn't full of booze that is!). Learn something new every day. Thankyouverymuch.

I've never seen or heard of a Mimosa tree. It is really unique and pretty.
