    Your lovely Jerusalem Thorn Trees look very much like the lovely Palo Verde Trees of our Southwestern Desert. I have some growing in my Garden and being a Native drought tolerant species they thrive and put forth magnificent blooms like this in abundance even during our most unforgiving Seasonal heat and droughts.
