Danny, you made me pull the book out for the Latin name...you are correct though. More commonly known as the Silk Tree or Mimosa.

Stew,

I have many fond memories of that tree.  If I told those stories, it would reveal my poor-upbringing-roots (of which I am vey proud of by the way).  That has to be my favorite latin name........It feels good off the tongue as you say it out loud ;D.  OK............All y'all have to say it out-loud (ALBIZIA JULIBRISSEN) and tell me if I am right ???.  Come on y'all, don't be shy.  If y'all have a better candidate of a latin name flowing off the tongue, fess up ;)

Your post of that flower brought back some of my most deep seated memories as a child.  Thank you!  I owe you at least one catfish supper, maybe two ;D ;D.  I will pay up soon.  Maybe we can convince DonK to partake as well :D.  Maybe we could drag over the Forum philospher, DanG too. 8).

I'll be visiting with Don Tomorrow. I am definitely coming to Georgia in October for the Ag show. I too have memories of that tree as a youngun. Used to strip the leaves off the branches for what seemed like hours.

Tell DonK that I am jealous of his fine experience at Sawlex.  He did look good in the pics, though ::).

I have fond memories of that tree, too.  An evermore bigg'un stood right over my Grandma's chicken house.  They were all over the place, and the leaves were fun to play with.  I became less fond of them when I owned some land that had them! >:(

BTW, I don't eat catfish unless I'm by myself, or with somebody. ;D

Speaking of Sawlex and Catfish, Tom and I had some mighty fine catfish at the exhibitors meet and greet friday night.  You Missed out DanG, remember the first one in Ohio?  Free food and beer?  Same stuff only they had some AWESOME catfish. I ate about... Well, lets just say I ate a few. ;D  Then Tammy and I went and had Mexican with Custom Sawyer and Lorraine.  About a pitcher of suds each for Jake and I and I was still thinking about that catfish.


I still say, add a hook, ya got a crappie jig.

That might work if you could find a hook small enough...wouldn't last but a cast or two though.  ;)

My favorite Latin name: Vaccinium stamineum.  Now that rolls off your tongue! :)

I'm also interested in what kind of wood that mimosa bloom is sitting on...Lemme guess, red maple?

This may be hard to believe since I am so ID challenged but I knew that one. Pretty flowers. I lived in Corpus Christi for two 3 year stretches though. Anyone who lives there knows them. And Oleander. And Chinaberry. Ahhhh the Chinaberry fights we use to have. Trash can lids for shields and slingshots (wrist rockets) for shooting the vaunted berries at each other. Street versus street. High velocity projectile versus eyeball. Ouch.

Kill it. Worse than ailanthus.

As far as latin names, Texas Ranger got my favorite one to pronounce.  The Southern way (which of course is the correct way) is Lick-qwid-DAM-bar  Sty-rass-ah-FLUE-wer.

yeah, sweet smelling, prolific Sweet Gum.

I don't get insulted, but I've found some of the prettiest cabinet wood inside of Sweet Gum that a man could every want.  It's a fact that it will come up  most anywhere though.  :D
