~ Bloomin' Tuesday ~

Here's what's bloomin' this week:
This is the Mimosa tree, with huge fern-like leaves that sway in the breeze...
This year it's just covered with blooms (pictured above)..aren't they unique!

This flower is called "spotted bellflower" I bought this perennial last year, and I love the two inch lavender bells.
I have a large container of Zinnias on the patio. They are no work at all and continually bloom all summer...

I love the Mimosa Tree.

The Mimosa is unsual and very pretty. The bloom reminds me of Pink Fairy Duster, which has the same structure.

My mother in law had a Mimosa tree in the yard of her previous house. Sadly the new owners cut it down. I think I planted Zinnias. Mine don't look as good as yours. Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!
