I love this tree. I always think the pods would make a great shape for earrings. http://psychotropia.co/wp-content/upload.... This is a great image of the flower

You're welcome. Hopefully it will bloom soon and you can post pics of the flowers to help confirm the ID.

Hi injica, the ID I gave you is based on the extreme curve in the seed pods and that A. auriculiformis is one of the widely planted Acacia's in India.
