The Bird of Paradise I got from @milehigh_7 , decided to wake up. Don't know if it's a tree, or just a cool plant. But I like it. View attachment 137377 View attachment 137378
They are pretty cool when they flower but the seeds are a nightmare. Caesalpinia gilliesii.
We had one that was cut down and the neighbour has a few of them. In late summer when the seed pods get just right they explode and even from the neighbours yard they can travel and hit us. They come up all over the place.
