As long as i know Tabebuia have pamate compound leaves. Not single as on the photo.

Catalpa longissima maybe ?

The flowers are a match, but the leaves didn't seem right. I have never seen either in person, so will defer to your ID experience.

I think it is a Chitalpa, a cross between a Catalpa and a Dessert Willow, but not sure. Smiling

That certainly looks to be spot on Josephine. It seems to match both flower and leaf.

It could be Chitalpa. There are a couple in the database with bloom but no leaf photos: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Chitalpa&button=

I think Chitalpa too... Some are blooming around Santa Cruz now.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.
