My all time favorite Tree...EVER......




The Mimosa Tree...
my all time favorite tree...
I love when it blooms...
when I was a kid I would pick the blooms and put them in my hair...
or pretend they were powder puff...
and rub them across my face...
I always loved the way the leaves felt too...
would pretend they were my fan...
and the pods...
would of course be used for pretend cooking....
I love the fragrance the flowers put off...
I get so excited every time I see one bloom....




What is your favorite Tree????

Deb, that The Mimosa tree is a gorgeous tree!! One of my favorites is a Mountain Laurel and of course, Crape Myrtle (suppose it's called a tree or shrub!)

Hope you are having a great evening!

Mimosa is high on my list, too! The smell is so nice!

Always loved Mimosa's too! Hours and hours of playing with the pods, leaves and flowers, when we were little! My other favorite is a big ol' Magnolia, they're so elegant and the blooms smell so divine!

Mmmmmmmmmmmm... That's the name of that lovely and soft looking tree!!! Yummmmmmmmmmmmmy!

Although I haven't seen many around this neck of the woods. Perhaps it's better suited to warmer climates...

Would you BELIEVE that I had already thought of using a pic of my "chippie", as my new Header pic?

Would you believe?

We used to have a big one in our front yard when I was a kid. I spent a lot of time up in that tree, it was a great hiding spot. I think my favorite right now is Japanese Maple.

Oooh! So pretty!

My favorite tree would be a great big willow. When I was little I used to climb among those huge drooping branches and curl up with a book and some snacks. And noone could see me. I felt like it was my precious little hide away. :)

The Mimosa is high on my list, the other two are sycamores because of the white bark and seed pompoms and ginkgo because of the fan shaped leaves.

We had a big mimosa in our yard when I was a child and I spent many an hour playing underneath it. Those blossoms smell so sweet.
I planted two that I grew from seed that are now in my back yard. Last year they bloomed for the first time and I was thrilled!

Mimosa is a tree! Here, they are houseplants!
My favourite at the moment is lilac! Even if the flowers are fading!
