What is it? Tuesday

This is a close-up picture.
While driving around running errands, I saw this tree. I always keep a camera ready in the truck just-in-case. I stopped in the middle of the road (not looking to see if anyone was behind me first - oops). I need an "I'm a Blogger" bumper sticker for the back of my truck! Does anyone know what this tree is called?
(The people that live in this house don't speak English. So asking is not an option - I tried)

I don't know but it is pretty!

It may be (not sure from the picture) what is commonly called a "gold chain tree", Laburnum. The flowers ought to look like pea flowers, if it is. They are popular yard trees.

Beautiful tree but have no clue.......wonder if it can grow in Washington. Maybe I'll print a picture of it and take it to my nursery.....

I've never seen that kind of tree before but it sure is gorgeous! Yes, I too need a "I'm a Blogger" bumper sticker. :)

Like Lanny says, it could be either a golden rain or golden chain tree. It is very pretty.

I did a little on-line research and it does look like it could be a Golden Rain or Golden Chain tree. Here is a site I found:

Thank you all so much. I looked up Laburnum, Gold Chain Tree and there it was. The tree was so pretty - I just had to know what it was. Thanks again :)

It's beautiful. We have lots of those in the Philippines and it blooms in April -it's commonly called "April Shower" :)
