Catalpa in Bloom

Good morning,

This lovely catalpa tree is directly across the street from our home.  It is in full bloom now as is the one we have at the bottom of our driveway.  The aroma from these blossoms is gloriously delicious.  The blossoms don't last long and because of our travel schedule we miss them every other year.  It is wonderful to experience them this year.

Enjoy!

Lois

Hi Lois, They are beautiful and majestic trees.

It's a huge tree so the aromas from the blossom must be superb for a week or two.

Lucky you. That tree is huge and you get flowers and the fragrant's.

You got it made girl.

Have a nice day. We have rain here for four days but no floods like the other poor country has. Texas is it.
