There are two streets in my neighborhood that have these trees dividing opposing traffic. When I was working I would drive by them everyday and loved watching them change as the seasons do. Living in Southern California I don't get to see the leaves change color come Fall. I had threaten to photograph them but never had the time till now. I would say that the tree is still in the spring stage. The bark still has a golden hue about to turn green and the little buds on top look like chili peppers. When the tree is in bloom I'll post that too, it's such a drastic change. I love everything about these trees and if any of you know what they are let me know.
Hope that you guys are having a fantastic day.
