bare Mimosa Tree

I often like to photograph this Mimosa tree.  But I think it is beautiful even when it has no green or blooms.   The structure of the tree itself I think is really nice.  Unfortunately there is no good angle to photograph it as a whole, and not get the power lines in the photo.  Oh well…

My Grandmother’s Mimosa Tree

My Grandmother had this lovely Mimosa tree.  She would always be so happy on the summers when it had good bloom.  The hummingbirds love to feed off of it in the summer.   As if it’s pink blossoms aren’t gorgeous enough all on their own, seeing them surrounded by hummingbirds only adds to the beauty.

I have always thought it was a lovely tree.   I even like the lines of it when it has no foliage or bloom.   Gram passed away a couple of years ago and since then it has bloomed more beautifully and bigger than ever before.

Every time I look at it, I think of her and it always warms my heart.
Even in the cold of winter.


I love you Gram.

Thank you for watching over us.
