I have been totally mesmerised by this tree ever since I first encountered it at Fitzroy Gardens, Melbourne. I had to ask the guy at the Conservatory what tree it was, as I was in awe at the beauty of the blooms.
Well, here where I live now in California there are many of these trees in bloom at the moment. The hardest thing I find is trying to capture a bloom on a branch low enough so my 18-55mm lens can get it. Perhaps I’ll have to hire a telephoto & hit the streets to get some more pics, mmmmm :)
This one was captured on a street in Sunnyvale, California just behind a park called Los Palmas.
