When I hear the word Mimosa, I have to admit it is the drink which comes to mind first, but it is also a beautiful flower.

I always thought of if as a southern flower, but it turns out, it isn’t actually native to the United States at all. It was brought here in the 1700’s and has grown wild ever since.

This is a photograph of a flowers on a Mimosa tree I stopped to admire as I road my bicycle to the office one hot Saturday Morning.
