The Yellow Mimosa

Our longtime friend Barbara says: “I’m writing this email from Florence in Italy, where I’ve been living for a couple of months already, to study art.”

“A few days ago, the 8th of March, I went out with my best Italian friend Maria, and as we walked down the street, three guys from my class said hi and they gave us this beautiful yellow flower, la mimosa. I’ve been told this is the way Italians celebrate ‘La Festa della Donna’ every 8th of March.”

Let’s celebrate women from all over the world and let’s learn something nice about this beautiful yellow flower and what it represents.
