Eastern Redbud Tree

It’s been the warmest winter on record for our area.  I am sure that we will pay dearly for this shift in weather, and we are already in serious trouble when it comes to moisture and spring crops.  But I don’t think I’ve seen a nicer spring when it comes to flowers and trees and lawns and birds singing.  Looking out across the lawn from my family room windows, I saw this tree, caught by the afternoon sun, literally glowing in all its splendor.

  1. I agree with you ~ I don’t if I ever remember a spring when the flowering trees were so beautiful for so long ~ and all at the same time!  Glorious ~

  2. We are having a beautiful Spring, as well, but we have gotten a nice amount of rain.  Of course, it hasn’t cured our drought-ravaged area, but it is helping.  Our lake was 10′ down, now only 3′ low.  Hoping the rain will spread out this year and the Lord will yet again have mercy on us!The Redbud tree is one of my favorites!  It is sort of our harbinger of Spring, and I always welcome those beautiful lavender buds!!

  3. Beautiful. When we were working in our yard on Friday and Saturday, I thought, “I am not sure I ever saw some of the flowering trees, bushes, and flowers all blooming at the same time.”

  4. I know just what you mean. There has been something extra special about this spring. Beautiful, beautiful redbud tree.

  5. It’s beautiful!  We, too, need rain very much.  The ground is so dry.I hope you and Sweet Mama are well.  Love you.
