Sunday Mimosa Love in August

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

Today is mom's birthday. We are always happy to see our pink Mimosa tree put on a show for her.   


August is about the only month of the year that I'm (Debb) a fan of this particular tree. 


Also known as Persian Silk Trees, this is NOT a native of the Pacific Northwest.  In fact, in the south, they grow like weeds. It's also a messy tree, and drops leaves and pods like crazy. 


Ah, but in August it comes to life with airy pink blossoms. So today, in honor of mom, I will choose to drink in the beauty of the mimosa blossoms. 


Happy Sunday!

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Hello Debb and Bernie - while it may not be a native to the Pacific Northwest, your Mimosa tree is putting on quite the celebratory show in honor of your Mom's birthday.   Here's more greetings from the West Coast.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I know them well.  We had one in our back yard in Pennsylvania when I was growing up.  Yes it is a messy tree.
