Redbud Tree Blossoming 1886

We’re still having some chilly mornings near the end of this coldest winter in a long time, but indisputable signs of spring have started to appear. For the last week or so I’ve noticed various redbud trees, Cercis canadensis, beginning to blossom here and there, including this densely flowering one that I photographed yesterday on D-K Ranch Rd. in northwest Austin. The clear blue sky was a welcome change from all the overcast days we’ve recently had, and the high temperature for this afternoon is predicted to be around 80°F (27°C). That’s a nice warm way to end the month of February, don’t you think?
