Mimosa acacia in full bloom...

The mimosa acacia is native to Australia, especially New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania...
Years ago, when we moved here, I found some seedlings growing in our property...

I picked them up, transplanted them, and wooh, what a surprise...
They bloom in spring over here, and we really like the fluffy, puffy, and fragrant flowers...

I find them to be difficult photo subjects, especially the close-ups, but these few picks are quite decent shots... no?
(P.S. Notice the wild sakuras blooming in the hills at the background.)
