What a gorgeous colour!
I totally agree, and I’m so glad you like it. Thanks for looking.
Congratulations – your work is one of this week’s features in:
Oh, thank you! I am so honored!
Wow, I dont think we have these in Idaho….what wonderful blossoms….congratulations on your feature. Di
We didn’t have them here forty years ago. I went away to college and noticed them in southern Missouri, and when I did a little research I found that they grow in Michigan and up into Canada. So I got one through a nursery catalog, and now I see them all over here. I’m in USDA zone 5.
Thanks for your kind words; I’m glad you enjoy my picture.
I love redbuds; such a shot of intense color after winter. These are lovely!
Yes, the first really bright spot after all that white and dull brown. Thanks; glad you like it.
