Mimosa Tree








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!

that's the prettiest tree shadow I've ever seen! I've heard of a mimosa tree, but I think they don't grow where I live.

I think I like the ground view of the tree best. What fun!

These trees are lovely, adding a soft canopy over the land. And their shadows leave a kaleidoscope underneath. Absolutely stunning!

What a beautiful spread of shadows. It's almost as if they are the visible xray of the tree's roots.

I think I like the first tree silhouette the best - it just jumps out at you.
