We Have Photos!!!

Ok, since I FINALLY found my card reader (helps to clean up the studio now and then) I can finally post some pictures. For those of you who have never seen a Catalpa tree, this is a leaf from one of ours. Yes, that leaf is 12" across. I love these trees even though they are messy. They have masses of beautiful, orchid-like blossoms in the spring (and they smell good too), these big, beautiful leaves in the summer and cool seed pods in the fall. Of course, picking all this stuff up in the fall is work but I don't's worth it for the 6 months of beauty. Oh, and the naked tree looks pretty cool in the winter!! So, make that 12 months. Now if I could just figure out how to get the honey out of the particular tree this leaf came from! Part of the tree is hollow (another drawback of this tree; the wood is soft and termites love it)and there was a hive in there for 2 years.

Anyway, I am VERY happy to have found the card reader as I have several photo albums to reproduce in book format for my dad for Christmas (I wanted to find a more portable format for him so, when he has to bug-out when the hurricane season is on, he can take them with him). So, have to take the neighbor to the West Michigan Cancer Center this morning for follow-up testing (she had lymphoma and is in her 80's- the roads are a little slick and she is afraid to drive so the Tribeca and I are off to do our good deed for the day).

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
