This tree, as far as I can find out, is a Tabebuia heterophylla otherwise known as a Pink Trumpet Tree, a White Cedar or a Pink Cedar. Right now it has burst into flower all around the city, showering roads, cars and footpaths with withering pink flowers as they drop from its branches.
We have a few smaller trees, meaning a couple of meters tall, near our place. The flowers are so delicate or lacy looking, like a ruffled skirt.
Up among the branches of this tree I could see that a nest has been made using leaves. I'm not sure whose nest it is.
These flowers looked so pretty in the year morning sun against clear blue skies.
What is flowering around your place? Has spring arrived?
This week has been cloudy, muggy and hot so it is nice to look at these photos with clear blue skies to remind me that this is the colour hiding behind the clouds.
