I am not sure if it is real or not, but it is rather beautiful in
form.

Looks to me more like a mimosa than anything else... hard to tell without
clearer view of the foliage.

Hehe... even absent a clearer photo, we'd certainly know which it is if it
were in bloom. :-)

The photo is digitally altered. An image of the tree image was added to
an image of a dancer as a surface texture. Neat trick.

*Very* neat trick... but we still don't know the species of tree. :-)

From Wikipedia

A Mimosa is a cocktail-like drink composed of three parts champagne and two
parts thoroughly chilled orange juice, traditionally served in a tall
champagne flute with a morning brunch. It is also often served to early
guests at weddings, and in first class on jet airliners.


Mimosa...
INGREDIENTS:
Champagne (1 bottle)
Orange Juice (1 carton)
PREPARATION:
Fill half of a champagne flute with chilled champagne and top off with
chilled orange juice, gently stir. For added flare, slice up a strawberry to
decorate the rim of each flute.

Passion Fruit Mimosa...
INGREDIENTS:
Champagne (1 bottle)
Passion Fruit Juice (1 carton)
PREPARATION:
Fill half of a champagne flute with chilled champagne and top off with
chilled passion fruit juice, gently stir. For added flare, slice up a
strawberry or an orange to decorate the rim of each flute.

Mama Mimosa...
INGREDIENTS:
Champagne (1 Bottle)
Orange Juice (1 Bottle)
Orange Liquer
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
PREPARATION:
Fill half of an 8oz. glass with chilled champagne and add another 4 oz. of
chilled orange juice, gently stir. Next add 1-2 tablespoons of orange liquer
and mix thoroughly. For the final touch, add raspberry ice just before
serving. (* Raspberry ice - crumble fresh raspberries and place the crumbles
into ice cube trays, fill with water and freeze. )

I don't rate Wiki. Also, all those recipes are a waste of champagne!

Mimosa is a plant or tree. I was once very proud to grow a mimosa
(sensitive plant) from seed, a son would take it with him when he bathed, he
'exercised' it by stroking the open fronds and watched them close.

Ah well, there are worse things for an adolescent to do in the bath.
