These trees was growing in Galveston, Texas. They were about 15 to 20 feet tall. My first thought was Acacia, but I can't get a positive match. Seed pods are about 5 or 6 inches.

It's been bugging me b/c I *knew* I had seen this before & I have, although usually one sees them in pink or red blooms but I have seen the white but not very often. People usually go for the eye catching colors of pink or red.

Calliandra haematocephala aka white Powderpuff

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Not it. The leaves on Calliandra haematocephala are pinnate. The leaves on this one are bi-pinnate.
Sorry I didn't include a better leaf photo the first time.
