Mimosa Time (not the drink!)

IMG_2266_edited-1.jpg

My poor, very crowded mimosa tree is loading up with blooms.  Early morning, through the day, and in the evening they fill the air with a gentle scent that is fragrant and very soothing without being over powering like honeysuckle. I enjoy the delicate blossoms way up on the tree, but they do make a mess when they fall.  I just wish I had a way to capture the scent and bring it inside so it would last until next year.
