Puff Blossom Tree
On my way to work today I noticed this tree with little puffy blossoms. They were so awesome and I had never noticed them before. It is right before I make my turn off of Route 73. I noticed today because it was a bit backed up due to a tractor trailer that was sitting in the turn lane not moving. This photo didn't come out as nicely as I hoped but hopefully you can see how they just look like little puffs of pink and white. Anyone know what kind of tree this is?

The Whites had a tree like this in their yard when we lived on Haines Ave. It is called a Mimosa Tree!
That is so cool! Thanks, mom. I don't remember them having one.ReplyDelete
Maybe by the time you were born they had cut it down and planted a dogwood tree. Mimosa trees are unual but very messy. They re-seed quickly so we always had a million little mimosa trees growing in our yard and flower garden.ReplyDelete
