A weekly photo linkup
When I was a kid we called the mimosa flowers "hippie heads." A related tree which is common here in south Florida is the Poinciana, AKA "Flamboyant." Its seed pods are sometimes over 2 feet long. They contain poisonous alkaloids and cyanide. The eagles put them in their nest, possibly to deter parasites.
Two feet long! Wow! And I didn't realize they contained potentially poisonous substances - not sure if our variety does as well. Also read the comment from Bhavesh Chhatbar below - his comment is also interesting.
So tender and beautiful!Thanks for hosting
Wow! Amazing to see these flowers in some other part of the world! In our childhood, we used to call them Kaurav-Pandav based on an ancient Indian story where there were 100 brothers called Kauravs and their 5 cousins called Pandavs. The flowers seem to have hundred thread-like leaves and 5 filaments.It's one of my favorite trees! Perhaps it's called Rain Tree, which I guess is a national tree of some South-East Asian country! The tree grows huge!
Such light and feathery flowers!
Wonderful blooms... fantastic captures. Thank you for sharing.
I love mimosa and miss it. Growing up my neighbor had a beautiful tree.

Hi! Very beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
What a pretty and feathery looking flower. I've never seen or heard of it before. Enjoyed seeing it and the droplets add as it looks like glitter. Very nice.
Pretty flowers. Mimosa trees are not common here but we have lots of mimosa grass or weeds. Happy Tuesday!
So that's Mimosa? Sorry to be so ignorant about plants Sue. But, I am trying to learn.
