Backyard Nature Wednesday: Redbud buds






Most of the native redbuds in the area have been in bloom for several days now, but my specimen is a variety that was purchased from a nursery. It's called 'Forest Pansy' and its blooms always come about a week later. This week the buds are popping out all over and the bees are feasting. Yes, it really is spring here!

    1. It's already turned the corner here and I'm sure it must be peeking around the corner even where you are in Connecticut.

    1. Indeed. Enjoy them while they last which won't be for long.
