Redbud Tree

My favorite time of year is spring and I love Redbud trees.  Mine is blooming at it's peak right now.  I sure wish it would stay this way all summer.  But then, I guess we wouldn't have anything to look forward to each year.
Isn't it beautiful?  What is your favorite season and what is your favorite tree?

The white dogwoods are my favorite. We are about to help our 17 1/2 year old dog to cross over, and it is a dragging feeling as we near the date (this Friday) -- I know that whenever I see these trees I will think of this time of year and of her.

Oh, my gosh, Joan....I'm the first
to comment. I've never been the
first ever before....anywhere!
I love your redbud tree. It's just
beautiful. We have them here in
Michigan as well as Bradford pears
(which are gorgeous in the fall,
too), and the weeping cherries are
something to behold. I always
thought I was a "summer" girl, but
there's nothing like the first
burst of spring color and the first
warm rays of the sun on my face in
the spring to make me feel "alive".
Thanks for sharing the picture.

Joan - Rosebud trees are my favaorite too. About 5 years ago we were driving through Virginia and saw these beautiful trees along I 81 and didn't know what they were so we stopped at a restaurant and asked. We went again the following spring and when we got home immediately planted a rosebud. They are absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Spring is my favorite of
the seasons. It is so hard
to pick a favorite tree since
I love all the ones that bloom
in the spring...but if I had to
pick just one it would be the
Our redbuds have already bloomed
here in Arkansas.
