European Cornel. We call it 'dren'.

We must dissent.

RE: Botany Quiz
Yes, it is a cornus mas, a very useful tree not only because of the very healthy cornel cherries but also because its wood is the hardest in Europe. In classical times it was used for the manufacture of spears, later so-called Ziegenhainer walking canes made from its wood became a famous means of self-defense and attitude adjustment among German students in Jena.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

Here in the continental part of Croatia it has been traditionally used as replacement for palms in Palm Sunday (Cvjetnica) ceremonies. Nowadays olive branches predominate though.

Scilla bifolia, in German Zweiblättriger Blaustern or Sternhyazinthe. It isn't native here among us Northmen. ;)

An easy one.

Some sort of mangrove tree.

RE: Botany Quiz
The leaves are similarly shaped, but the shape of a Black Poplar is totally different.

The second Indian summer picture should be considered a hint. And this tree is not native to Europe, but can be found in many parks and gardens all over Europe.
