The mimosa tree outside the front courtyard is in full bloom and hummingbirds come and go taking nectar from the flowers. This tree has to be a hardy guy -- a few years ago, the gardeners cut it back to the stump as it was dying. The following spring, new shoots came and it is nearly as full with branches as when we moved in over 20 years ago. I sat out this morning, reading the Sunday newspaper and watching the hummingbirds feed. Your Dad would have enjoyed the sight !!
