Red Bud Trees

 Good morning,

The Red Bud Trees are spectacular this year!  What makes them even more fun is that these are "volunteers."  

Forty five years ago I had a Red Bud tree planted just to the left of the two you see in the image above.  Eventually, a big storm took it out and I thought we were without our pretty spring flowering tree.

 But, here we are with more lovely blossoms.

The two trees you see in the first image grew on their own, whether from roots of the original tree or from seeds.  I certainly didn't plant them, but when I discovered they were growing there, I marked them so they would not be mowed down during grass cutting.

We have a third Red Bud tree "volunteer" out closer to the street.  For about a month, our front yard is just magical with the pink flowers.

Happy Spring!
