• A Collision between Autumn & Spring

    close up on mimosa flowers
    As autumn leaves continue to drift past my window (well those that haven’t been blasted into the next county by the recent gales), the mimosa is coming into flower. As lovely as it is, it is far too early – mid-February to mid-March is its usual season – and I fear that if/when any really cold weather arrives, the flowers won’t survive. I was in London over the weekend and there the mimosas are in full bloom. As someone who grew up in the subtropics where seasons are more or less non-existent, I don’t like it when everything collides – please can we have some winter before we have spring. Do admire my wonderful mimosa fabric tablecloth with inspired yellow bobble trim – a gift from a friend who really knows me well. flowering mimosa
