I ♥ Spring!

 Love  ♥  Love  ♥   Love 
my redbuds in Spring!

First come the sweet tiny blossoms 

and then with a grand Ta da!

the tender leaves emerge.

    Both are glorious.  


  1. Hi Carloyn. How beautiful. I love seeing the Redbuds bloom in the spring here in the hills. I wish I had one in my yard.

  2. how joyful are your Spring posts Carolyn and no wonder with such a blooming lovely tree. Our equivalent is the Judas tree (Cercis siliquastrum) which has more negative connotations than redbud but equally lovely. The leaves are heart-shped like your signature ;)

  3. Oh most definitely!

    I need a redbud.

  4. Awe, my beautiful 'Forest Pansy' redbud got smashed and broken with a late spring storm that brought a foot of HEAVY wet snow! Now I think it will have to be pulled out because it will probaby not sad!

  5. Red Bud is one of my favorite spring flower flings. I like to use them in design, but my contractor will not grow them and refuses to warranty them. They are a bit temperamental to conditions and siting, so I have missed them for over ten years of working with this grower. This is so nice to see them blooming all across the US. Your images of blooms and leaves are lovely.

  6. Your joy in spring literally jumps off the page. Maybe we that dont have specific seasons are really the ones missing out :) HAPPY SPRING TO YOU!

  7. I love redbuds, too. One of the prettiest spring trees. You are right - glorious. I needed your little 'heart' symbol! Didn't know how to make it.

  8. Dear Carolyn, I just bought my first redbud. I am excited! P. x

  9. Carolyn I love your Redbud !
    I really wanted one too but I was afraid of our zone being a little iffy .. so I stuck to the conservative side with my last full sized tree with Amur Maple "Flame" it;s Autumn colours grabbed me ?LOL
    But oh ... your Redbud ... is beautiful!!
    Joy : )

  10. Redbud always reminds me of 'lace' - just so sweet and delicate! Beautiful post feature... :)
