Here in Hawaii, this tree is called a shower tree if I'm not mistaken. In New Mexico, they are called Mimosa trees. In looking it up, it seems that perhaps most of the world might know them as Persian Silk trees. Which, I think, is a very apt name as that is what the flowers look like-silk threads.
These trees are well cared for and have a beautiful umbrella like canopy as a result. Someday, they will be gigantic-just give them another 30 years of so.
Join us as a group of us (yes-there are many of us!) from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!
