A Mimosa tree, after all these years!
2012-07-21 (土) | 編集 |
When I was a boy, there was a mimosa tree in the back yard of our house. I remember playing in an inflatable swimming pool under that mimosa tree. I thought the blossoms were strange and beautiful. We moved to another house when I was five. I seldom saw mimosa blossoms after that. I assumed mimosa must be rare trees. Recently, I mentioned to one of my students that I had never seen a mimosa tree in Japan. She said there are a lot of them but they only bloom for a very short season. By chance, when I took my son to a local river this morning, there was a blooming mimosa tree near the parking lot! The sight and smell took me back 40 years. I talked to my son about the old mimosa tree from my youth. He picked a couple of the blossoms and we enjoyed playing in the river.
