Catalpa tree

The catalpa tree is almost the last tree to get its leaves, and the first one to lose them, but when it's canopy is full, it's a beautiful sight. Those large leaves provide plenty of shade and squirrels love to scamper among its branches.

This particular tree is in a neighbour's back yard. The long pods hanging down are seed pods. Many small catalpas will sprout in the spring all over the neighbourhood from those pods hanging down.
