Nature makes pom poms too.

Perhaps flowers like these inspired our ancestors to experiment and create their own. I wonder.

When crafting  the sky has no limits for the clever ideas that turn pompoms into characters, fruits and decorations. TodayI have been musing on this notion, and once again reminded how nature is our greatest teacher and inspiration.

    • Thankyou. My mother loved and talked of mimosa which she said was like wattle, but till I looked it up after your comment had no idea of how it really looked and it does resemble our pompom flower moreso as you noted..
