This small tree is blooming, usually our winters will kill it and it will grow back but we had such a mild winter this year that last years growth did not die. It has several blooms.
thanks

Just a wild guess, but check out this link:
Orchid Tree (Bauhinia acuminata)

Hopefully soon others will chime in and someone can correctly ID it.

The leaves are right for Bauhinia but I've never seen one with white flowers. Gorgeous!

The leaves and flowers aren't quite right for Bauhinia acuminata.
