As much as I enjoy the Japanese cherry blossoms, I think there are some equally lovely native plants blooming now. Witness the Redbuds I photographed at Claude Moore Park yesterday:
I’ve never been sure why these trees are called Redbuds, as the flowers look more violet to me, but I do know that they are a most welcome sight in the spring. Especially on an April morning with wind chills in the 20s!
Beautiful blossoms, and a landscape completely free of crowds.
