Mimosa Undead Bush


Mimosa Vampire


In the background is Big House (as opposed to what is now Studio 318, not in the photo). To the left is a fine old oak that provides shade for Big House. To the right is a power company branch pole; the electric line branches to the west and the other end of Big House for service entry, and to the east, overhead from the point of view to a power pole service entry for the well. There is also a Houdini Border Collie Bro.

In the centre is a mimosa, now a bit of a mimosa bush. On the ground, in front of Houdini is the trunk of the mimosa which used to live here, and got tall enough to threaten the power line to the well. So I cut it down. In March. Then it tried to grow back, out of the trunk, but those shoots all died as well and none became roots. At the stump, however, came the Mimosa That Would Not Die.

Bit warm to be dealing with it now. Come cooler weather... It. Goes. Away. Before it starts to threaten that overhead power line again.

Anything in the locust family you have to burn, salt or pour a gallon of vinegar on the bare root of.
Had a bulldozer clear my house site which had a couple of honey locusts on it. Broke up the roots and man I ended up with THOUSANDS of baby honey locusts coming up from roots, seeds, and whatever else it could grow from.

And everything grows faster in Florida anyway.
