I have to say your title hooked me. Autumn leaves in Florida?

But a very nice photo - thanks for posting it.

Not sure it's real name Bob. The common name is a Powderpuff tree I think. That's what I've usually heard it called.
There was actually a second bee working the back side of the blossom.

Thanks for the comments, Lordje. I think this tree that i came across is just one of the many varieties of the Mimosa tree. (Yes, there really is such a thing as a Minosa that is not a drink.) LOL

What good is it, if it's not a drink?
