I have to agree with Eileen. You do post some fabulous mature and beautiful trees, Andy.

Thanks. This tree is actually pretty small. It becomes a massive tree. In the Los Angeles area I’ve seen 65 ft trees.

Although, the trees here in San Diego bloom earlier than in Los Angeles. The 6 trees in this parking lot I’ve seen blooming in February or early March in past year.
