Below are a few pictures of one of my favorite trees – the Eastern Redbud in our front yard. I saw the Redbud tree for the very first time years ago in a local park. It was spring and the flowering Redbud, with its clusters of light to dark magenta pink blossoms caught my eyes (Redbud’s flowers appear before its heart-shaped leaves in spring) – it was such a beautiful sight. I made a note then to find out what tree it is and a few years back, we decided to plant one in our front yard. Now every spring, I eagerly await the redbud’s blooms.
