Tipulo Tree

We went to a possible venue for our 15th wedding anniversary last Saturday and were impressed with the estate we visited in our home city of Antipolo. Our host that afternoon was so kind to show us around and a highlight of the visit for us was something that we didn't quite expect to see there. Near the house of the owner stood a gigantic and likely to be very old Tipulo tree. This is the tree after which this city was supposed to have gotten her name.  Here are a couple of photos of the tree, which we took for posterity.

A gigantic, old Tipulo tree appeared to be the centerpiece near the home of the owner of the estate we visited
The tree had large leaves and bore these oddly shaped fruits.
