After the flowers

The fruit of the Paulownia. This pretty nut carries a lot of seed and pretty as the purple flowers may be in spring, this tree is considered invasive in some areas of the eastern US. Still, it's listed in Peterson's Guide to Medicinal Plants of the Eastern/Central US and of all things, can be used to treat aching feet. We ought to test that out at the garden one day after a hard day's work.
