Looks like maybe a Pink Trumpet Tree, Handroanthus impetiginosus.

Or if the flowers are yellow, then it's close cousin, Golden Teumpet Tree, Handroanthus chrysotrichus. But based on the leaflets, I'd guess the pink one.

I agree, the leaves and spent seed pods look like the Pink Trumpet tree.

Thank you very much...to both Carter and Lin...it's a new one to me...and quite a mouthful of a name. I forgot to specify that it has pink flowers. I have a close friend who goes to City of Hope regularly for treatments and she's fallen for this tree...LOL..wait til she hears that there is a yellow flowered variety also.
