Pink Mimosa

This is a shrub called Pink Mimosa and it’s a member of the pea and bean family. The individual flowers are arranged in globe-shaped heads. The pink parts of the flowers are actually the filaments or stalks of the male, pollen-producing stamens, and are the showy, pollinator-attracting parts of the flowers. The fragrant, pink puffballs attract many types of butterflies. In flower now! #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
