I don't think I had ever heard the name of that tree before... and how spectacular it looks! An almost abstract photo! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

A good time to snap a few photos!

We have a similar tree in our backyard. I call it the giving tree because it drops stuff for three out of four seasons. Yours is much fluffier. Ours blooms pink, like something out of the Lorax. Then the brown fluff. And eventually it grows long bean pods. I've never gotten a good photo of it. I like this one very much....good smoke effect!

Do those trees use smoke signs to tell something to you?..

Smoke Tree?! Now I have to find some information... and the Portuguese name too. :-)

I think that tree is under age. Who's buying it cigarettes?

Pretty shot. But what is a "smoke tree."

Smoke tree? I'm only two hours south of you, but I don't think I know that one . . .

Our Smoke Tree has bloomed and dropped all if its little tumble weeds. Strong winds two weeks ago blew most of them out. I made my tree into a bush next to our deck for privacy. The last picture on my blog has it in the frame on the right side.

Qoops, I have no idea what a smoke tree is!

I like your composition of this image!;)
Beautiful!

I imagine it is prettier than it sounds... maybe we can rename the smoke tree the fluffy incense tree.
