Pink Saturday

I'm joining Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for Pink Saturday. As you may know, I've challenged myself to post a white flower every day this month. Whilst searching for all these white flowers, I've run across some pretty pink ones too! So today's Pink Saturday item is this beautiful mimosa flower.

I took this about 6:30 this morning on my walk. (I am the dorkiest walker; carrying my camera!) The new blooms were just beginning to shoot out their threadlike petals.

This is how they look after everything has straightened out.
The sun looked beautiful through the feathery leaves and puffy flowers.
And even though the leaves aren't pink, look at that beautiful pattern.

Laura, I'm so glad you decided to participate, and I hope you will continue. I added your link to my post.

I was just appreciating the blooms on the mimosas yesterday. There are quite a few on my drive to work. They are such unusual blooms. Your pictures are stunning.

I don't think I've ever seen a flower like that before. It is stunning! Thank your for sharing. And, no it is not dorky to walk with your camera :)

Happy Pink Saturday.

take care,
Dawn

Hello Laura, I'm still making my rounds for Pink Saturday! What beautiful flowers you have pictured here. I've seen mimosas before but it has never looked so beautiful before.
Blessings, Shirl
