10 Jul Catalpa trees: looks like a thundercloud!
I love these trees. Absolutely one of the trashiest trees around and I’d love to have one. Jumbo heart shaped leaves. Followed by giant snapdragon -like/orchid creamy blossoms in huge trusses. Yes, they smell good. Then, these long vanilla bean like pods. 6-12 inches long. Perfect for coolio crafts. We used to have one at the other house. I loved to lay in bed and look up at the flowers and leaves as the season changed.
