Spring is indeed breaking out, gloriously, in your photo. Julie and I were in Spain for two weeks, last week and the week before. We had a lot of rain, which I presume you did also, so all of the spring flowers have received plenty of water..

Virginia said...

This is gorgeous! I have never seen this tree before. We have mimosas in Alabama but they are different. Happy Spring yourself! :)

Kate said...

Now this really shouts "Spring!" and I'm waiting for its echo!

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes! It does indeed shout, "SPRING"! Gorgeous, rich color -- looks like sunshine growing on a tree! Superb capture as always, JM! Hope your week is off to a great start!

It's like a burst of sunshine! And that is nice because it is cloudy and rainy here today.

Lois said...

What a beautiful bright shade of yellow! Our mimosa trees are pink.

Halcyon said...

These are different from our mimosas. Ours have pink, fluffy blossoms. We had a big, old one in the yard of the house where I grew up. :)
I'm glad spring is in full force now. Beautiful colors!

I don't think I've ever seen a tree like that one! Perfect for "Mellow Yellow Monday!"

We have mimosa trees here, also. Very beautiful, but I think they can be a bit messy! Lovely spring color!

Randy said...

That is amazing! Love how vivid it is.

Babzy said...

Happy spring time to you ! :)

That is the flower we call wattle over here. There are over 850 varieties in Australia -- golden wattle is our national flower.
