    Spring time is what I miss in Australia.

    When the wattles flower in WA about 6 hours in land from Perth it is so amazing.

    Shame it's 40 - 54'c in summer.

    I'm not sure of the name of the tree I like...it only blooms in the springtime, and produces these pink-purple flowers that eventually become "winged" seeds that are neat to watch flutter down....they travel quite far, with the slightest breeze

    I've always enjoyed the look of cherry blossoms. I would love to go to a cherry blossom festival, it would be amazing if I could go to one in Japan particularly.

    maybe a winged spindle tree?

    Lol, that would be interesting if the neighbour saw you. Would probably be very curious as to what you were doing/why you were taking a photo of their tree!

    Nothing can beat the Jacaranda.

    However, after we moved up here, I had a job that took me past a yard that had three gorgeous pink blooming flowering plum trees in it that were in full blossom in early April. One day, I stopped by that house to ask the owner about those trees. Nobody was home, so I left a note. They called me later and told me they were flowering plums, and I told them how much I had admired them.

    Now, I have my own pink flowering plum in my garden, but it hasn't begun flowering, yet.

    Sadly, Jacarandas don't grow up here. They are a warm-climate-all-year-around tree, and there are lots of them in southern California. If they grew well up here, you can bet I would have one.

    The Jacaranda is even more beautiful in person. I grew up with one in my backyard but it is very messy. Somehow I always got the job of raking up after it.

    I also love the Tulip Magnolia tree in full bloom. https://www.bing.com/images/search?v...=27&ajaxhist=0
