what's this?

this tree's been in my backyard for half my life, yet i have never seen it like this. it's all leafed out, but it has what i can only imagine to be tree "flowers" hanging from the branches. a strange and unusual sight out the back window, that i mostly just want to document here.

Things Are Looking U.P., i think you are right! someone here called it a "moose maple" - and i just read that striped maples are also called "moosewood". thanks for the identification!!
