there are so many flowers! They sure are gorgeous. I see a few leaves there...does it flower first and then put out new leaves? Is it Jacaranda time yet? ;-)

This tree is deciduous most of the time (however, it's evergreen sometimes). This tree has leaves when it blooms...it just has so many flowers you can barely see the leaves.
