INTERLUDE:Catalpa,Catalpa





By the second-third week in June (at this latitude, at least) the Northern Catalpas are in full bloom. Summer really has not arrived in Chicago until this happens. Yes, I have certain NCs that are my favorite...is that a PROBLEM? >8~(
This particular tree is at the corner of Waveland and Wayne and impressive because there's a healthy covering of Wrigleyville (it's in Lakeview West, actually) Ivy covering it's trunk.. Considered a "dirty tree" because of the amount of detritus it creates throughout the season (long seed pods, dropped blossums and the large spade-shaped leaves) this badboy grows fast and gives great shade; plus it's got great character! Hmm, maybe that's not Ivy...
OK, "Squidbillies" is on...Later.
Damn..I've seen it...
