The title of the post says it all. Well, not quite: I made this photograph of Cercis canadensis yesterday morning, February 25, along Rain Creek Parkway in my northwest Austin neighborhood.

Sky blue will be back tomorrow, but with a bright yellow shining at its center.

A closer look at a blossoming redbud tree

You recently got a look at a redbud tree, Cercis canadensis, that was doing a good job of blossoming on February 13. Two days later, across the street from the flowering huisache tree that you also recently saw, I found a graceful redbud doing its thing on the prairie. This pastel view, closer than the last one, gives you a better look at the way blossoms and branches typically work together in this species.
