Blooming orchid tree

I planted 3 seeds of an orchid tree in the spring of 2009. I used simple white plastic cups for planting and wrote on each: "Please grow". Well, it listened! We've got 3 perfect little seedlings. We left 2 in the pot and planted the third one right in the garden.
Over the years the 2 potted ones died but the one in the ground survived the heat, the frost, several transplants and became a beautiful little tree. Today it's about 7 feet tall and this is the first spring when our tree made some flowers and there are so many of them!

I am very happy about it - big smiles :) I just took a picture of the massive planting of these trees by Harrah's Hotel in Laughlin, NV so here is how it will hopefully look one day:
