Mimosa blooms


I have really been enjoying this mimosa tree that is blooming in the woods behind my house. It's kind of far away though, so I decided to zoom in on some of the pretty pink blossoms with my camera. This particular shot shows blooms that have already wilted underneath some that are in full bloom with a few future blooms just above them. I know this is an considered an invasive plant, but I still love it.

Update on the healing progress of my leg fracture: I'm walking pretty well, but my physical therapist still has me pushing my walker along in front of me until I get more steady on my feet and also to avoid any more falls. The exercises he is having me do take up a good portion of my day, but I am determined to keep at it until I am at full speed again since I have some fun plans for the summer with my kids and grandkids.

We don't have Mimosa outside here so it is nice to see them. I'm glad to hear of your progress and your determination, Lois! ;-)

We have mimosas at previous homes and I also like them much, although as I recall, they can be messy. Glad to hear you're continuing to heal. You have a lot more determination that I do. I would have fired that therapist and be spending most of my time watching TV by now. So, kudos to you!

I love mimosas, and had no idea they are considered invasive! Even the leaves are beautiful. And if the breeze is blowing in the right direction, they have a lovely smell. I am so glad you are healing, but I agree it is a good idea to still use your walker.

Good news on your progress. This is a very pretty plant. It looks a lot like the one here that we call a Baja Fairy Duster.
