Yippie! It survived

The other day I wandered by the mimosa tree that I recently discovered in my neighborhood.  I was worried that the last two snowstorms would destroy the wonderful yellow flowers.  However it is still blooming!  Every time I see these yellow flowers I can’t help but smile.  I am so looking forward to spring.

      I’m glad you liked it Nia. Gardenias remind me of my childhood. We had one in our entryway to our home and every time I smell Gardenias I am reminded of my home and of the happy feeling of walking in the front door.

  7. Oh, I’m so glad it survived. I kind of felt like it was one of my babies since I helped you find the name for it! LOL. Thanks for giving me some Spring in the middle of my snowy day!! 🙂

      You were a big part of the process! Couldn’t have done it without you. I’ll try to send spring weather your way, but I usually find my powers are useless. I used to try to conjure up a big snowstorm before tests in school to have a snow day. I failed each time.

  8. How lovely! Glad it survived. Didn’t know it was that big!

    Amazing… He made it. I’m glad. It’s a real beauty. On Monday caranval starts. Carnaval in Basel is, I think of the top 10 in the world. It’s a huge thing – mimosa are one of the features, people throw them from the waggons and buy them. I found this link for you, you might enjoy and you can also see the mimosa.

      That looks like a ton of fun. I’ll have to remember this event in the future. I would love to witness it myself. It really starts at 4 in the morning? That’s amazing.

      • Caroline says:

        Yes it does and in the whole town all the lights have to be turned off. Many people party until it starts. I think it is nice in the evenings, very melancholic when there are just pipers in the dark alleys of the old town. Since the old part is Medieval it’s quite nice.
        You should see it once, there are different “programs”. Tuesday afternoon is for the children and Tuesday evening is a type of brass bands and…

        I will have to keep this in mind when planning trips in the next couple of years. Thanks for the information. I had never heard of it before, but it sounds like a fun time. And it is always easier for me to get up and out the door to have fun. If I had to get up that early for work I would grumble the entire time. But to enjoy life, that is a different matter.

    So this is where mimosas come from. I’ll have to bring my champagne glass! These are spectacular – drops of sunshine!
