Mimosa Tree

My grandparents in their home in the village of Foshtom (in Gilan, Iran), had a tree that was so exotic looking. I never saw it anywhere else in Iran and I always thought of it as an exotic tree from a far away place.

In Europe I saw many such trees. Recently I learned this tree is called Mimosa Tree, or Persian Silk Tree or Pink Silk Tree and that it is a native of Iran. In 1800s it was brought to Europe by an Italian and from there to Florida, California, Panama and elsewhere!

I have decided to buy this tree and plant it in my home in Panama as a way to remember my grandparents.

The flowers are like silk and when I was a kid (and even now) I loved to rub one on my face. It just feels so good!

  1. As stated by Stanford Medical, It is really the one and ONLY reason this country's women live 10 years longer and weigh an average of 42 pounds less than we do.

    (By the way, it really has NOTHING to do with genetics or some hard exercise and really, EVERYTHING about "HOW" they are eating.)

    P.S, What I said is "HOW", and not "WHAT"...
