Midsummer: Mimosas in bloom!

In keeping with the recent theme of "Midsummer," I present some images of one of my favorite flowers: the Mimosa. They come into bloom toward the end of June, just when it gets really hot outside. Some people consider them unwanted "weed" trees, because they will grow almost anywhere in warm and humid regions, but I think their pink puffy flowers are uniquely beautiful. Because of the recent dry spell we had, the Mimosas were turning pale, but the nice, steady rain we had on Wednesday brought the color back. So, I took advantage of the situation with my camera when the sun came out late in the afternoon.

To see a closeup of the Mimosa flower, showing the glistening rain drops, roll your mouse over this image. Click on it to see the rest of the new Summer 2007 photo gallery.

blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
