This flower is the mimosa from the mimosa tree. There is also an alcoholic drink called mimosa but they are not related.

someone else put a macro of a flower of this tree on LF a couple days ago. We planted one of these trees out back here, when we moved here 20 some years ago. Another name is Silk Tree, or Albizia Julibrissin : ) It grew quite well for a few years and we liked it, it had been trimmed of lower branches before we bought it, so the top part formed like a "canopy" over the upper part of it, very pretty. But guess it didn't get enough sun at the back of our place, so eventually something happened and the trunk went rotten, so we took it down. DH just finally got rid of the last bit of rotted roots and short bit of trunk a few days ago, coicidentally. I think the hummingbirds like the nectar from the flowers,think we read that someplace.

I grew up with some in my yard. I used to climb them. They are short so easy to climb.
