Redbud!

This little tree seems to light up for miles. It's perched on the hill beside the driving range in my neighborhood. I planned to include it in my initial Spring page in the previous post, but couldn't contain myself. This beauty needed a page of its own!

Rob was having a golf lesson, I sat in the cart and did my favorite thing :) The entire page was created there.  I checked the weather when we returned home.  I thought it was at least in the mid 60's as I was in the sun  and out of the wind....but not.  Only 59 with a strong ENE wind.

  1. oh this is gorgeous. I didnt realize that redbuds were so pretty. I love pink trees. We have flowering plum trees starting to bloom all over town. Not as brilliant as this tho. YOu did a lovely job on this page.

  2. I can't wait until our redbuds are out. We have several weeks to go, yet, I think.

  4. Thanks, Chris. This was probably planted as a specimen tree. They do grow wild also. There's no mistaking them!

    Thanks for stopping by, Nellie. If you're north of the Mason Dixon line, I'm afraid you're right. But, P.Phil did predict an early spring :)

    Thanks, Val! You've got plenty of talent, too :)

  6. Another perfect harbinger of spring - redbuds! They color the hills all around northern KY - so fresh and pretty. You did a great job on this - I think your joy was showing throughout.
