Yes, "mimosa" is a common name for several plants, including Albizia julibrissin (mimosa tree)

I think "Mimosa" is sometimes a confusing name because it is also a plant genus with 400 species
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimosa
and it is sometimes used for Acacia species with yellow flowers e.g.

Anyway, it's easy to add multiple common names to a spotting (spotter's option).

It's a Catalpa species. I'm guessing it is cultivated (not wild) and then it is likely to be Catalpa speciosa or Catalpa bignonioides (hard to tell which from the photos).

Brome grass, Espiguilla de burro commented on by C. Daehler Madrid, Madrid, Spain9 years ago

Since the photo is from Madrid, it seems appropriate to guess that is could be
Bromus madritensis (subspecies rubens), but it's difficult to ID grasses from photos.

The first picture is Stachytarpheta cayennensis. The flowers in the second picture are Erigeron karvinskianus. You'll need to make a separate posting for each species and their corresponding photo so that you can fill in the IDs.

Based on the leaflets and clustering of flowers, this is an Albizia (Albizia julibrissin)
