Eastern Redbud

I don't want to step on Tender Heart Bear's toes, but I have to post a picture of my favorite spring flowering tree.  This Redbud is on Erie Street.

If you're going to plant Redbud, the advice usually given is be sure to use local stock as Rebuds from elsewhere may not be cold hardy for our winters.

Orbs....easy...Lacey look, you been going to Victoria Secrets?

In front of Insinkerator they have some crab apple trees, when they flower they are beautiful but they don't last long, couple weeks at the most.
