Observances about nature and life
from just outside Victoria BC . . . and from sundry other locations

For over 30 years I thought this tree was an Acacia but now I wonder. We came back from our trip to find the tree in the back of the house in full and beautiful bloom. The flowers have a strong scent of honey. Now I'm wondering if it might be a Honey Locust. Does anyone know?
By the way, it has wicked thorns.
I'm going to have to get some of this tree cut back because it's completely shading our upper deck and is starting to affect the shingles and the roof. But isn't it beautiful just now?
