Early in May the large Paulownia tree came into flower in the burial ground. It was a pretty special sight as its unusual to see such a big tree with purple foxglove like flowers, and according to our neighbours it doesn’t flower every year. The flowers have preceded the leaves this year rather than appearing together because it has been so dry.
Last Autumn I brought some of the seed pods to Bath Meeting and I wonder if any Friends have had any success in germinating the seeds?
