Redbud trees are one of the reasons I look forward to Spring. For the record, I don't know why they are called redbuds when they have purple flowers. Really and truly, it is hard to pick a favorite spring tree, but the redbud starts with an "r".
It has always been a personal goal to have a redbud tree in my yard, but, in all the places we've lived, there has never been a place to plant one. Imagine my delight when spring arrived, and I discovered that there was not one, not two, but THREE redbuds in my yard. Happy dance!
Ahh, so pretty, so lovely. Redbuds!
