Nature Notes along the Bike Trail...

Walking along the bike trail in Loveland, Ohio. This is what I saw:



It is June, of course, and I am in the Northern Hemisphere. But, I saw a few of these yellow leaves here and there. I tried to ID them, but can't. They have strange squiggly markings on them in black and green.



The next unusual thing that I saw, I WAS able to identify. It is an exotic looking tree with an exotic sounding name - the Mimosa!






I prepared this post in order to participate in Nature Notes over at RamblingWoods.com. We all get together on, or about, Wednesday to see what nature is up to here and there around the globe!

  2. The mimosa is my favorite tree. The blooms are great for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. I was sad to see the old one in our yard died a few years ago. I wish I had one back now. Lovely post.

  3. Very cool, these mimosa. I tried putting your yellow leaves in Google Goggles for id, but it came up with nothing useful.
