Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis)

The pea-like blossoms of this tree caught my attention in early Spring firstly because of the vibrant pink colour and secondly because they appeared before the tree leaves giving it a very dramatic appearance. Eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis) is a small tree usually found in the eastern United States. Redbud is also known as Judas-tree because according to legend, Judas Iscariot hanged himself from a branch of an earlier European species.

Exploring the neighbourhood

A few flowers had caught my attention on the school run but I was always rushing so had no time to stop and appreciate them.  So I decided to take my camera for a walk and left the kids with my hubby. This is what I found.
