75. Mimosa or not ?

This plant grows in Pont-sur-Sambre. Some say to me it were mimosa. Others say, mimosa cannot grow here in the North, and it is no mimosa. But it has a good smell.. Also, really, I don't know what is this flower-plant. Can you help me ? Here in this garden, it is so old as the time at which the EDF (Electricité de France) City was built, 45 years old. The EDF Citys were built in the early sixties of the 20th century for the EDF workers, but as the elctricity production unity -the electricity was made out of coal- went close, some houses of the Citys were sold for a interesssant price. Many trees and plants of the EDF Citys are also planted at the beginning of the sixties. They were planted to held the earth because the earth was brought here to build the citys higher than the often overfloaded meadows. So that it is important to let the trees of the city and their roots grow to held the earth. So, what is this plant : Mimosa or not ?

I'm sailing first outwards on the Saône and on the Rhône until Arles, and now on the Canal du Midi to the town of Toulouse where we are looking together at the pictures of Stéphane.
