Redbud Trees in Bloom



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

There are more signs of Spring in our yard on Tennessee's Cumberland Plateau. We have two redbud trees in our yard, and they are now blooming. These buds are just now opening up.

Orchids! Aren't they? There are many varieties of them in my home country. They all produce flowers with very interesting shapes.
