 I had dug up and transplanted a baby Mimosa (Silk) tree about 4 years ago now I think.  The tree grew like crazy last year and this year as well.  It got a few flowers on it for the first time as well this year which I am sharing a capture of here.  The leaves are folded up for the night as I took this image in the evening as I was watering.  I was surprised to see the flowers as other trees of this type had flowered a few weeks ago in our town.  Not sure if it was late blooming because it is young.  I love the hairy whispy looking flowers these trees have.  They are not native to Kansas and can be considered invasive, but I like them and will keep it from spreading.
