Where Have All the Silk Tree Flowers Gone?

This is a silk tree I saw in the parking lot at the new Paso Robles Grocery Outlet on August 22. As you can see, it still has some flowers, but it has also started producing its seed pod fruits.

Below is another silk tree in the same parking lot on September 19. It has lost all its flowers?

So where have all the flowers gone? Part on the ground and part transformed into the fruits -- all that is left but the leaves. To get a larger view of either photo, please click it.
