As I have said before, your 'street trees' make ours in the UK look so drab! Great pictures as always Andy.

Agree with Rbt again. Our trees really do look drab against yours

Thanks! Right now there's thousands of these street trees blooming.

Thanks! That's funny! I guess it is in San Diego so many flowering trees are used as street trees... Jacaranda, Orchids trees (several species), Markhamia, Cassia, Tipuana tipu, Tabebuia, Erythrina (several species), Corymbia ficifolia (several colors) and the list goes on and on.

Yes, they are very attractive trees. I especially like the fragrance from the flowers.

It's a sweet scent...almost like a sugar candy.
