Redbuds



I mentioned redbuds the other day, and I thought I would post a photo of the drive at the northside of Bicentennial Mall (above). The redbuds provide a beautiful entrance to the park. What I particularly like about them is that they seem to be growing right on the branches and/or trunk (photo right). Redbuds seem to grow wild here, which makes roadsides very pretty during spring.

I don't know much about redbuds, but if you want to learn more, click here.

Thanks, again, for understanding about my shoulder surgery. I will hopefully be able to type with more than one hand soon.

They certainly add a lot of color, they are very pretty.

Chris, that is a beautiful display. I haven't seen them planted as more than single specimen trees here, and that is very striking.

I hope that you're feeling better!

Very beautiful shot Chris!
Hope you'll have a speedy recovery.

This is quite a splash of color for a short lived tree. Surely they must have some hybrid variety in order to plant them like they are here. I like the photos you posted today. Nice work.

Oh, my, but this photo takes me home! Thanks for making the effort to get this onto your blog. Mama enjoyed looking at it, too. I hope your recuperation goes well.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!!!!

And how are you coming along? I certainly don't mean that question, as something I expect an answer to. I just hope you are coming along well, with your shoulder healing.

The redbud is the state tree of Oklahoma! (That's where I spent most of my childhood).

Glad you are able to do some one-handed hunting and pecking. :)
