Drops Of Sun


This was taken last summer near my Grandma's house, the sunset seen from behind the leaves of a *Catalpa* Tree (that's what I know it's called: A big solid tree with huge leaves, it blooms somewhere between late May and early June, they have a very pleasant scent, resembles the locust-tree flowers scent, the seeds are protected by jackets just like string-beans but much bigger, the jackets ripen in august...).


The Catalpa tree in the Japanese Legends is a Holy Tree Through Which the Forest Spirits communicate to humans... Japanese people cut these down only to make The Arches which serve as entries for their Shrines...Of What I know...


I planted one in my yard this year...Replanted it...actually from the back of the house....It's most like a sapling that has grown from the seeds of the tree in this photo!
