Does anyone know?

While on my walk this afternoon with my dog I spotted this delightful tree with cute yellow flowers.  Does anyone know the name of this tree?  It is such a cheerful creature.

    I don’t know, but it surely is pretty, as you say

    It’s a Yellow Mimosa

  3. Detective Cindy at your service!! I googled it and found that it is called Acacia Dealbata (common names: mimosa or silver wattle). Man I love Google!!

      Dude you are totally awesome! I took the lazy route and here you are sleuthing away for me. Thanks! I wish I could have one on my deck, but I saw that they can get to be 30 m tall and 10 m wide. Such a delightful tree.

      • Awww, it was nothing! 🙂 However, I must say I am confused. I thought you got a snowstorm there, but you said you took this picture today? Did your snow melt already?

      • TBM says:

        There are remnants of some snowmen in the garden across the street, but other than that, the snow is all gone. It didn’t last long at all. Which is a good thing…leftover snow gets so gross.

    That’s probably one of my favourite trees. It’s a mimosa, indeed. The flowers smell lovely and the leaves fold when you touch them. In German you say to someone who is touchy he or she is a mimosa.

    A Yellow Mimosa.. I have to remember this beautiful tree 🙂

    • TBM says:

      I’m glad so many people were able to identify it. When I own a house with a yard some day I want to have this so I can look at it all of the time.

  6. Carol says:

    So pretty. And I love the spark of yellow. Today’s so grey here.

    Looks like it could be a tree in the new Dr. Seuss animated film coming out, Lomax.

    • TBM says:

      Oh I didn’t know that there was a new Dr. Seuss film coming out. How exciting! I haven’t been to the movies much lately so I miss all of the previews. It doesn’t come out here in the UK until July.

    Very pretty. I have not seen this before, but now I know.

  9. Kate Kresse says:

    Lovely! I have never heard of a mimosa tree before !
