As long as they bloom

I saw this tree yesterday outside someone's house and I think it's pretty. Don't know what tree it is but it is in full bloom now. If you know what this tree is please let me know ya.

I like trees that bloom to add a splash of color into the gardens. If I had a big backyard I would definitely plant some flowering trees like this or any other flowering trees as long as they bloom!

WuChing, I saw this tree too!! What a coincidence! Was it in Victoria St? I think its a 'crepe myrtle'....if u look up Gardening Australia, a show by ABC tv, u will see an image of it and u can compare.A clearer picture of the tree can be found if u go to wikipedia. It is a captivating tree indeed. Was hard to keep my eyes on the road when i first saw it! BTW did u go to the Richmond CNY street party? Next Sunday its Footscray's turn and then Springvale next. Happy New Year!

mamabok: thank you for trying but its hard to know what it is just from the picture. i do appreciate your help.

keeyit: i wonder if it'll make a mess on the ground when the flowers drop?

EK: long time no see, how are you? yes the tree is in victoria street when we went there on sunday for the lunar festival, you should come to my newer blog where I blog about it! http://wuching.com p/s: thanks for the info on the tree, I will go to abc website to have a look now
