Mimosa pudica

Mimosa pudica or touch sensitive plants are all over the place here.  Ellie noticed that much of the lawn we have here is touch sensitive.  Now that we know about the plants, we are in awe every time we walk through the “grass.”  God really got creative here in the tropics.

    Dear Ellie,
    Thank you very much for noticing the touch sensitive plants in your “lawn”. They are amazing! Doesn’t our Heavenly Father have a fantastic imagination?

    So that’s how you mow your lawn. The kiddos just go out and roll on it.

    What grace that the variety of Mimosa that you have as your thick lawn is “kind” as well as fascinating!! The mimosa “brand” in Hawaii has very mean thorns!! Hmmmm, what is that all about…besides the grace that you and the children have in your “praying leaf” lawn!! Yea! God!

    That is amazing! First time seeing that created beauty! Thank you for opening our eyes to such wonders. I hope none of you get worms from touching those plants ;) or monkey butt, or anything the sloths carry. Regardless, it’s all part of the adventure, right? WE LOVE YOUR POSTS!
