Catalpa Mystery


The seedpods on the catalpa tree can grow to up to 20 inches long, and in every which way but straight.


I’ve racked my brain trying to come up with an explanation for this coiled seedpod.


What were its growing conditions? If it grew around something, why isn’t it still around it?


Maybe it’s the Jonathon Livingston Seagull of the catalpa pods.

  2. That top photo looks like a really cool drawing.
