One of the things that I actually miss about Southern California is the jacaranda trees .

African Tulip Tree

The African Tulip Tree, rightly called “The Flame of the Forest” Spathodea campanulata

another one of my favorite trees

A tree with purple leaves! My new favorite. It's called Jacaranda mimosifolia.

White flowered

Silent Saturday - Angel's Trumpet tree from Kula Maui HI This was a tree by the Kula Lodge, with white flowers. This was a tree by one of our Kula homes.
