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.
“He hath made every thing beautiful in His time . . .”
