One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

This is the giant Catalpa speciosa in the National Grove of State Trees
Of course we know how Dr. Olsen feels about catalpas. I like pretty much all plants and can't help but admire the stately elegance of this specimen. I like the arrangement of the flowers, like happy faces crowded into a window smiling out at the world!
