Mimosa Tree

One of the things I recall growing up is playing under the Mimosa tree in my Grandparents yard. In mid-summer it has sticky pink and white blooms and it's leaves are made up of tiny little sections. It's seed pods were fun to gather and use in our childhood games as play food or to throw at a nearby cousin.

While many now call these trees a pox due to their fast growth and tendency to spread. That doesn't seem to have happened around my grandparents home place. There are a few around but they don't seem to be taking over.
