Redbuds Blooming in Charlottesville

My friend, Phoebe, reminded me that Springtime in Virginia is the ultimate in “product placement” for Redbud.  So, we came up with a “Redbud Photo Contest.”  Here are our entrants.  So easy to fall into a blissful reverie just scrolling down these beautiful photos.

Above, Frank Bergland’s photo evokes the film sets of epic dramas like Gone With the Wind.

Above, Amanda Hynes-Thornburg’s buds.

Above, Rabia Magee’s full-blossomed magenta redbud.

Above, Amanda Pace Dickerson’s gorgeous redbud.

Above, Dede Smith chose a tree whose embrace welcomes us to the Rivanna Trail.

Above is my neighbor’s redbud, taken over our fence.

Above, Lissa Maki’s closeup. Lovely.

Above, Phoebe Fliakos’ tree with the school and school bus reminding me of what Spring means to children…FREEDOM!
