Tulip Tree Flower

Ugh, more pollen than my eyes can stand, but these flowers have been steadily falling off our tulip tree for the past two weeks.  The tall tree is also known as canoewood, which refers to the tree’s large trunk, and due to its fine grain, is used for construction of dugout canoes by Eastern Native Americans.

(On a completely different note, I’ve noticed that the crows swipe up the “tulips”, sop them up in the birds’ water baths, and fly away with them – perhaps to soften it up to feed their fledglings?)
