Catalpa

Our Catalpa Tree was in full bloom earlier this spring.  Bees were attracted to the showy flowers.

A catalpa is any of a genus catalpa of hardy American and Asiatic trees of the binonia family, with large, heart-shaped leaves, showy clusters of trumpet-shaped flowers, and slender beanlike pods.

Our tree has grown tremendously in the four years we’ve lived here.

Perhaps one day when it’s all grown up it will resemble the Catalpa Tree in my mother’s yard.

The leaves on her tree are large enough to use as fans!  And the blooms leave a carpet of white on the green grass!  A few days after this picture was taken the ground was solid white!
