Looks a little like our Goat's beard,  but I know it's not.

Good Show, Don!

When I first moved onto my property, I had one of these growing at the hard road.  I went out of my way to protect it because I thought it was so neat.  Now I realize that they are growing everywhere and don't seem to have much economic use to me.  I still like the ornamental balls and cute tree shape. ;D :)

Must be a NorthEast Fla thing, Tom. I don't think I've never not seed one of them before. 'Course, I don't live in no swamp, neither. ;D
BTW, you must be gettin' old, if you're thinkin' "tree shapes" is "cute."
