Flowering Trees

The recent hot and dry spell and the sudden rainfall that ended it has forced the trees to flower. And I mean trees, not shrubs or bushes or smaller plants.

These golden showers are rather lasting. They have been around for a couple of weeks. I drive past them twice a day and I always tell myself - get a picture before they fade!

The color of these flowers just gladdens my heart. They come in beautiful pink and purple.

I don't even know their names.

This huge blossom hung very low so I didn't have to climb the tree to get this photo!

Hi Tooki. Thanks for visiting and following Just One Donna (www,justonedonna.com). I'll do the same for you. I posted my dinner suggestion as a response to your question.

So pretty. We are not familiar with the last tree, love the bright color!
