98/365+1:It's A Redbud Bud, Bud


98/365+1:It's A Redbud Bud, Bud, originally uploaded by Yankee T.

Technically, it's a Cercis canadensis, but we call it a Redbud. They are prolific here in my town.
Nothing is more striking against a gray sky.

The redbuds here are more beautiful than I've ever seen them this year. It appears that the trees that lost some limbs during the ice storm in December put out the deepest, richest almost purple blossoms. I've yet to get a picture to do them justice.

Your picture is great! I agree, there isn't much more striking than that color against a grey sky.

I like the soft background for these flowers, it helps highlight them.
They are lovely and make me eager for the lilacs that we get here.

The only color here is on my peach tree and the neighbors forsythia. Pretty but I cannot wait for everything else to come to "life".

Very pretty! I love all the contrasts and how they work together.

Our crocuses and dafodils are barely showing their colors. I am envious of your wonderful blooms and your mornings and evenings with them. Soon enough Mass spring will be here..

Thank you for the glimpses...

Please also photograph the azaleas and dogwood. I was in Memphis today and they're stunning!

Anon: Unfortunately, I am not a fan of the azalea. I can appreciate that almost everyone here loves them, but they, and hydrangeas, are not my cup of tea. I'm glad you found them beautiful, though, as they are everywhere and so colorful.

If you look at some photos from a few days ago, you'll see some dogwood. I'm about to post another. Thanks for visiting!

Wow, why do you not like azaleas? That's sort of like not liking chocolate or puppies, isn't it? What's not to like?
