¡ #FLOWRSBYPICNIQUETTE is back!

Picniquette and FLOWRS* have been taking you for a walk (you can see  here all the previous posts) through the amazing world of the flowers in season every month and FEBRUARY cannot be dedicated to anything else but the wonderful and rich Mimosas… a flower in season just for this month! FLOWRS  as usual pick them and I shoot!

Let me introduce to the flower of February:  Mimosa!

In my country, Italy, as in other few like Russia for instance, this flower is well known as this bouquet you get used to gift to women on the 8th of March for the woman day, right?  The truth is its life is really short and its beauty overwhelming. Its tiny balls, like you can see in the pics, don’t last too long. But also when the plant is dry remains visually incredible. And it smells sooo good!
