Dry meadow; this one bush the only bloom except a few straggling pink star thistle and some hayfield tar weed. Quite a party!

I cannot identify the species of this tree. Every year around the middle of summer, it bears large, spherical buds that drop from the tree all over our driveway. The outside is soft and there is a large, hard nut inside.
