  2. Cool that this tree grows in your backyard.
    Mimosa. Does it bear fruit?? (I'm not really sure what a mimosa is...except for the drink.) hahaha
    Thanks for the soft and soothing visuals.

    1. No fruit--but it smells great! I sit under the mimosa and read but yesterday I got caught up in the bee activity in the blossoms!

    1. So glad you love my idea of the bed springs for a pot rack. Can't wait to get it up but I was sort of waiting till I repainted the kitchen and I think that will be a while. I was surprised when I found it on Pinterest. They also have pics of it on the ceiling and hanging it that way. Enjoy...

    2. Hmmm, I like the ceiling idea too. Seems there is never enough storage space in the kitchen!

  7. There is a house in our neighborhood that has the prettiest mimosa tree in its yard. I'll have to take a photo of it. Mimosa trees are not common around these parts. They always remind me of my great grandmother. She had one that grew in her rock garden. Wonderful childhood memories!! xoxo

    1. There really is something special and kind of magical about mimosa trees. Ours is so full of life....hummingbirds, bees, even praying mantises!
      Hope you're having a great Fourth of July!
