A Blossom-Tree Like A Big Umbrella

This tree is way down Chilco from our place. It just caught my eye because it looks like a giant puffball of flowers, a near-spherical umbrella.

And you can step inside the umbrella! It's actually dark in there, the leaves and flowers are so dense. It would be a great cool spot for a picnic on a hot day. And you get a few flowers blossoming inside the puffball.
