03/26/10 - Redbud
In my continuing effort to bring you a picture of everything blooming in central NC...the Redbud.
This tree is growing in my yard. Although it is native to this area, I bought and planted this one. In the spring, all the branches are covered with these purplish flowers. A short time later, it leafs out with the most beautiful heart-shaped leaves. Very pretty all year long.
I am quite sick with this cold. It's probably the worst cold I've had this year. My week's vacation starts tomorrow, and there's an event at the school tonight and an egg hunt tomorrow so somehow I have got to get better quick!
Thanks for your comments on the tulip magnolia:-)
The bluebird box in Madi's yard has 6 eggs in it. Typical is 4-5. As soon as the babies are born, I'll get a picture. Eggs are here:
There's a chance of a freeze at my house tonight:-( This would be a great time for the weatherman to be wrong!
