Silent Sunday



This is a mimosa, one of my favorite trees. Mimosas grow wild in our daffodil field and produce beautiful clusters of pink flowers.

Of course the other mimosa is made from champagne and orange juice. They may cause you to run wild in a daffodil field, but otherwise there's no real connection
.

Have a great Sunday.

Having one already, thanks!

Hope you got to relax on that beach for a good while yesterday.

So that is a mimosa then eh? We have them here and I never knew their name. Had one growing down the back until it died from neglect (and prob the drought).

No Fireworks? Or shouldn't I remind you?

I had no idea there was a flower called mimosa. It's so soft looking and that color! See how much I learn when I stop by here?

Yours are very beautiful. Ours (I think? We call them Chinese something -- Chinese elderberry? Dunno) are sort of dusty and ugly. Same tree but the blooms are less pink.

"This has been fecking fascinating, Foolery. Now go home." Thank you. Your welcome.
