That looks to me like an oak leaf hydrangea.

The lacecap is native to Japan and has a more ovate leaf and upturned flowers where the oak leaf is one of ours. Well, that and I showed it to the boss and she immediately said "oak leaf hydrangea".
When she worked at a nursery a customer came in and asked if they had any of those high geraniums. Silence, gears turning, "You know, snowball bush" "Oh, smooth hydrangea, yes m'am"

I seem to see this type tree advancing all over the country,  It seems to have first been noticed in the deep south around creole country but as an invasive species have others noticed it where they live?

Actually the proper name for that particular one is; "Kaleidoscope Stroke" since it has different colored bottles.  One with only clear bottles is; "Silica Transparencii".

I believe they were first genetically engineered by an acholic dendrologist as a designer landscape plant.

Not a new TOTD, but one from a while back. Sitting outside the school waiting for the kids, and the kowhai are flowering, and the Tui birds are making the most of it.



The school road frontage is maybe 300 yards of those trees. Pretty much every tree has several Tui  birds in them. The best ones have 6+ arguing over territory and mates. We have a few in the trees at the back of the house, as there are camellia and cherry trees down there that they also like. But nothing like the numbers here. 

Tui are a honey eater, but pretty smart and feisty birds. Their song is hard to describe as they can pretty much make any noise, up to being trained to talk like a parrot.  They are one of the few NZ birds that adapted well to farmland and city living.  The local birds seem to move into town for the winter and hang out in the gardens and parks. Another month and they will head 10 miles up the road into the Nat Park and nest there over summer. 

But they are really cool to watch this time of year, if 20 of then meet up in one flowering cherry tree. :D

went and picked up the silver black maple oak.  @Southside:)  it is just a branch but was assured it might have curly figure and be worth a million dollars.   @WDH    :D :D :D  highly valuable log.

it had enough curve that it made four 4.5 foot logs.  here is the 5/16th inch stuff for the coasters on the engraver.



 





it sure looks like maple.    :)  @WDH  @Southside

looked ok till you think about putting it on the mill.  one end had hollow rot.  but most was solid.  this is a branch that rotted at the base and fell, the tree trunk was over 5 foot diameter.  if you go back a few days you can see the tree.
