Thanks! Just wait until I take some photos of the Tipuana tipu - Tipu trees... which have apricot-colored flowers. They have been blooming for the last 3 weeks now...I just need to find a good tree to photograph. There's many thousands of these trees growing here.

I've never really noticed. LOL! It could..although I've never smelled any fragrance while standing next to these trees.

I'll have to find out...I have several neighbors that have this
