Trees; the Indian Bean

In 2005 (before the days when BWT preferred to plant native English species) seven Indian Bean trees were planted, most of them near the roller bench.  Catalpa Bignonoides is a North American tree with poisonous roots and fruit, and apparently the showy flowers smell nasty, but birds like the shelter of its large leaves.  The beans (better NOT touched) can be as long as 13 inches!
