Tipu or Teepee

I love Tipuana trees (tipu) – they’re messy, their proliferate seed pods can be found everywhere and their canopy of yellow flowers are abundant, leaving a yellow carpet across the lawn. Yet, its filigree weeping branches lend the garden an exotic South American feel and it provides a source of entertainment for kids, who love to climb its boughs.
