Pointy

This is a tree in the local botanical garden.  There are two of them.  I keep forgetting what they are called.  In the fall, they drop their leaves, and all their spiky bark shows much more clearly.  In the spring, leaves of green and big, pink flowers.

A part of me would like to sit up in the tree when in bloom and covered with leaves, but getting up there leaves a bit to be desired.
