Do you recognize this bloom?
It's a trumpet shaped flower, that has fallen from a tree.
Earlier today, I took a little side trip to the nearby town of Flatonia, Texas....
always looking for adventure and new things that might interest you, dear readers.
You may remember Flatonia from my post Observing a Mural Artist at Work
There was a strong wind blowing, as it usually does in the Spring.
The delicate blooms were floating down like paper confetti....
If it were not for the beautiful blooms, the tree could easily go unnoticed.
The flowers grow in clusters,
like small nosegays decorating the tree.
You may have guessed by now...
It is the Southern Catalpa Tree.
A friend gave me a three foot catalpa,
started from a single seed.
