Ahh, the ol' Eastern-backed Spinoinka tree of the Trobriand Islands, once thought extinct - until now. Used in the mating rituals of the Unga-bunga tribe. The woman is tied to the tree. If she's a strong woman, she can rip the young Spinoinka from the ground, roots and all, and use it to whap the man over the head when he's flirting with her sister. Then she runs off and mates with a member of the Haylookame tribe.

I would say a crepe myrtle, but it's not. I know nothing about trees, but it sure is pretty!

Morning I think it is a Jacaranda Tree. Have a happy day!

After googling for a few minutes, I am thinking maybe brachychiton discolor. But I don't see the trunk spikes on those trees. Still not sure.

I'm thinking of a flowering apple or cherry tree, but then again I see some tropical plants and tile roof, somehow that doesn't fit
