Eastern Redbud in Full Bloom


Eastern Redbud in Full Bloom, a photo by CrazyMaisy.

This is a partial view of our Eastern Redbud tree in the backyard. It’s in full bloom, has been for a few days now. It’s absolutely gorgeous. The trunk is visible, somewhat. It’s twisted around like that due to a dog we had chewing the sapling to a nub, then I let it regrow and it grew two distinct trunks, I trained them to curve around each other. I really like the look, and it’s only like that due to a dog.

I guess others would have given up on it, but I don’t cull unless there’s a really good reason to. This being the only Redbud tree we have, it was worth it in the end.

The tree on the left is past peak already, and the ones to the right are right at peak bloom now (started yesterday afternoon).

Usually these trees are in sync with their blooming periods but the one to the left was way ahead of the other two this Southern Spring March 2012 with first blooms opening March 10th.
