Today I want to share with you a tree in our our garden the Persian Acacia, link to information on Wikipedia.
Such a beautiful tree that I always feel it deserves a post all of its own when it comes into bloom. A little later than last years though, no surprise considering the unusually cold and wet weather we experienced earlier this year!
Persian Acacia post from last year on June 26th 2009.
I took this photograph of the buds on June 29th 2010
Known to the locals as Red Mimosa as the leaves look somewhat similar I can sort of understand this, however I think you will agree that the blossom is so much more beautiful than that of the yellow mimosa which also belongs to the acacia family.
By July 3rd 2010 these beautiful blossoms were starting emerge.
I am going to share this last photo with my collective blog friends over on Beautiful World. Nature at it's best don't you think?
There a few more similar to these to be found in my Flickr album Our Garden in July 2010 that I have already started ready for sharing with you at the end of the month.
