Pam/Digging recently had a post about Lost Maples State Park with its Bigtooth Maples. Philo and I had been surprised to see maples growing a couple of miles from our house - we rode our bikes over and scooped a few leaves. They don't seem to be Pam's Bigtooth Maples - and with 3 lobes, don't match things like Silver Maples either... anyone know the ID of these trees?
Here's another mystery plant. This photo was taken last spring at Zilker Park. I've looked around but can't put a name to this flower.
Edit July 2010: found out awhile ago that people in my neighborhood did plant Silver Maples in Texas! And as to the beautiful pink vine, it's probably Bauhinia corymbosa. More information
