    Question What is this deciduous tree?

    I know the basics: deciduous tree.

    I have been in this office building for 10 years and this is the first time it has stood out due to it blooming cycle.

    Can anyone identify it?

    Thanks!

    Don't know but I like the pinkish cottony looks of it!

    Maybe it can be used as a potting medium? LOL.

    You know there are trees in the mainland (lower or continental U.S.) that I really miss. ie: Cherry Blossoms, Lace Leaf Maples and such.... and Trout fishing in the rivers!

    One of the few things I miss from the east coast is riding the motorcycle and coming into an area with Honeysuckle. The engulfing scent is wonderful. Honeysuckle doesn't grow here in Colorado.

    I've never seen that. It's unique isn't it?
