One Week Wonder ...

Catalpa trees are late to wake up in the spring and drop huges leaves and seed pods in the fall which are truly messy to clean up, but for the one week in early summer when they suddenly break out in their flowers, they are amazing! Catalpas almost look like popcorn trees at this time, but up close the little flowers resemble small tropical orchids and give off a great odour for all to enjoy. Anna heard a little boy exclaim excitedly to his parents as they walked by, "Look! Look! Look at the beeeaaauuutiful tree!". Indeed!
