1269 Photos: Cigar Tree, a Blue Scarf and a Dragonfly

August 7, 2019

What do these images have in common? They’re all focused on a tree!I think you can figure that out though.

First, cigar trees!

Cigar trees are also known as known as the northern catalpa, hardy catalpa, western catalpa, cigar tree, catawba-tree, or bois chavanon. Other names are Indian Bean Tree and Western Catalpa.

They are potentially large trees and can grow to 60 feet tall. Each pod contains 8-20 seeds.

The cigar tree can grow in just about any condition, and can withstand flooding. In the early days of America, the wood from this tree was used by the settlers because it was rot resistant.

Last fall, my boyfriend and I cut down the one cigar tree (I thought) we had growing on the property. While walking around, checking things out I found this tree. Then, the other day I found another one. So I believe we have two!

I’ll have to check it out in the spring…it’s supposed to get a white trumpet-like flower on it that attracts hummingbirds. The little one I just found I will probably transplant in a few weeks, so it has a chance to grow the way it should. I just need to figure out where to put it. That, and the holly that is growing in my rose bush.

And now… the blue scarf.

It’s actually been there for a while. I washed it (I think) and hung it in the tree to dry. And there it stayed. And there it will probably stay.

And the dragonfly…

I took this photo with the zoom lens on my boyfriend’s camera. I wish it had turned out better, but it’s ok. For whatever reason, I haven’t been able to get very many pics of the dragonfly’s we have zooming around. Last summer, I had one land on my toe…

You can tell by the dogwood leaves, that fall is just around the corner. They’re the first ones to start to change. At least here on this property.

That’s about all I have for now. I hope you enjoyed!

Hope everyone has a great day!!
