#ThursdayTreeLove - Catalpa

You don't have to go far to find beauty.

Sometimes, it's just around the corner.  Or, it's next door.  Look around you, and you may be surprised what you find.
In my neighborhood in upstate New York are some catalpa trees. These are native to our area.
Here's a close up.
A lovely cluster of somewhat fragrant flowers. 

Besides these late spring flowers, "beans" will grow later in the summer.  It's a beautiful shade tree - a bit messy, but it can be forgiven for that.

Love a tree today.


  1. There is an old farmhouse up on the main road and as I drove home yesterday I noticed the lovely catalpa blooms. It is a tree of my youth and I do not see many anymore.

  2. Beautiful trees. I too love to join in #ThursdayTreelove tag.

  3. Love this tree. It is stunning. As far as I know, we don't get it here in S.Africa. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Love that tree. Those white flowers are gorgeous. Thanks for joining, Alana!

  5. Thats a beautiful tree, Alana. We don't have these in our part of the world, so thanks for sharing the pics here. Its true, beauty lies everywhere, all you need is to have the eyes to see them!

  6. Would these be one of the trees I saw in New Jersey? In Indian parks we often have names of trees written on - something that used to annoy me but having seen the gorgeous trees in the US with no names to identify them, I do wish they had signs too.

  7. so nice to see these trees, its a treat for the eye, thank you for sharing!
