The honey locusts are leafing out.

This leaf can't decide if it wants to be pinnately or bipinnately compound.

The flowers buds are growing on the honey locusts...

while the black locusts (Robinia pseudoacacia) have already bloomed.

The flowers look like pea flowers (locusts are in the same family as the pea) and smell just as delicately sweet.

All the black locusts I've seen are still young, which means about another 100 years of sweet pink blossoms. Thanks, Art!
