quite often there is a personal connection to my images that leads to a caption worth sharing each day. in the absence of a personal connection, some combination of my own knowledge, my husband’s knowledge, and the occasional session of internet sleuthing, leads me to a fact or two, or a remembered encounter or story, interesting enough to base a description on. here’s my confession. i love this image, but i can’t find anything interesting about the catalpa tree, except that the southern version (which this is not) hosts a sphinx moth larva prized as fish bait. anybody got any fascinating catalpa stories? cause i’ve got nothing.
