These photo's were taken mid August last year in the area of Balboa Park, San Diego. Does anyone recognize this pretty tree?

It looks a lot like Erythrina, perhaps E. crista-galli.

You're welcome, Lin. We lived in SD for awhile so that's my old stompin' grounds. Green Grin! Loved to go to Balboa Park! Thanks for posting that gorgeous photo.

Tee: My husband and I lived on Coronado Island for a couple of months in 1970 when he had to attend school for the Navy but we didn't really get out to explore the area with such a short stay. Our best friends of 39 years have two kids who now live in SD. We've been very close to their children all their lives and they call us aunt and uncle. Their son moved out to San Diego about 6 years ago where her met his wife and we went out there for his wedding three years ago and then last year to meet their new baby. Then our friends daughter and her husband moved out to San Diego two years ago and they are now expecting their first child so we plan on flying out later this year for a visit. I love Balboa Park and could spend days just walking around there, it's really a beautiful area! Our friends will be moving out there in the next couple of years since both kids live there now. They tried to talk us into relocating to SD too but although I think it's a wonderful place to visit, I could never live there ... traffic is horrendous. I don't drive on the interstate but it makes me a nervous wreck even as a passenger! :)

I know what you mean. We lived there before the traffic got so bad. We were in LaJolla for awhile and then lived up on Mt. Helix where we could see all the way to Balboa Island and the Balboa Bridge most days. I still have dear friends there - mostly in the east part of SD county. I would go back to certain areas, I think. But things change so I don't know. It's a great place to visit. Thumbs up

When we went for our friends sons wedding, they rented a huge, gorgeous home in La Jolla (called Casa Bella Vista) where family and friends from Florida stayed; it was great a great location and close to everything .... the home was amazing and views breathtaking!
