Tra La!

It’s spring!  And at least one of the Redbuds (Cercis Canadensis) knows it.  It’s starting to bloom.

One of the things I like about Redbuds is that their flowers bloom along their bare, woody branches before the leaves come out for a wonderful, colorful structural effect.

It’s native here, and grows wild everywhere and in gardens everywhere and is very common.  Sometimes common is good.
