Clouds of pink

I have been waiting all year for the mimosa tree in my backyard to flower so I could take its picture.  It is an annoying tree except for the few weeks when the whole thing turns pink.  This picture has some great bokeh (Japanese for "blur") because the background is so far away.  Bokeh is a pretty interesting topic; I would recommend learning about it and then trying to apply it in your pictures.  It is a tool to help highlight your subject and minimize distractions from other things in the scene.
