More of those weird pods. I assume they're not edible or the locals would strip the trees.They look kinda like dried bats hanging there.Pretty leaves, though.
It's a redbud tree, Dive. The tree will be covered with small, pink florets in the spring, often along the branches and trunks. I think it grows where you are, though may have a different name. I just found out that Native Americans ate the flowers in the spring, as well as the roasted nuts from the pods.http://www.clemson.edu/extension/hgic/plants/landscape/trees/hgic1021.html
Sounds more like a beer than a tree, but then I'm just home from work on a Friday night and EVERYTHING sounds like beer.I've not seen one of those trees over on this side of the pond, but I'll look a little harder now I know what to look for.
I knew I'd posted some redbud pictures this past Spring. Here they are --http://www.speedwaydailyphoto.blogspot.com/2012/03/pink-arbor.html
I have seen so many roses this fall standing in stark contrast to drought devastated yards, blooming away.
It's here, too, Lin. Neighbors have remarked on it, saying their roses have bloomed a lot all summer, while most everything else has either died off completely or been weinified when it did bloom.
