Robinia pseudoacacia seems most likely.

Not a Robinia. Robinias have bipinnate leaves, and leafless racemes of pink or white flowers. Maybe Partridge Pea (Chamaecrista fasciculata)?

Some sort of Mimosa ?

Chamaecrista fasciculata is its name, commonly known as Partridge Pea. Native to the States, see below

Agree, but Tugbrethil, Robinia pseudoacacia does have yellow flowers.

Nope, Owdboggy. Check it out for yourself: always white or a very pale cream, except for some of its hybrids, which are various shades of pink to burgundy. It used to be a popular shade tree here in Phoenix, before we started trying to conserve water.
