That makes a very nice banner, Valarie. Thumbs up

I'd never heard of a "plane tree", but know what a sycamore is. Smiling

Your title brings to mind the song "Baubles, Bangles and Beads" and is pretty enough to imagine it as inspiring a piece of nature's jewelry. The coloring is unique. A very attractive banner!

I am always fascinated by things that are new to me. This is one of them. Having gone to the DB I don't see this one listed. It makes a very attractive banner, and the name is also very interesting. Thanks for sharing it with us Valarie. Would love to see more pictures. Thumbs up

Great banner Valarie!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Per Wiki
The species was formed by hybridization in the 17th century after P. orientalis and P. occidentalis had been planted in proximity to one another. It is often said that the hybridization took place in Spain, but it could also have happened in Vauxhall Gardens in London where John Tradescant the Younger discovered the tree in the mid-17th century
