“MIMOSA PUDICA” or Sensitive Plant

2017-08-03-18-54-31This month I’d love to share a Macro Photo and spend another month on the Dominican Republic.  I came across these while shooting one morning outdoors up in the mountains at Palo Alto.  My grand-daughters had told me all about the plant, how it folds up or closes it’s leaves when touched.  It has beautiful pink blossoms, a berry like pod in the pea family, and it does re-open after several minutes.  What a joy it was to find them growing on the side of those amazing Dominican mountains. 

I’d love to hear your thoughts.
