they just don't compare to these old-fashioned buxom beauties.
I have my fingers crossed that all of the luscious buds on them THIS spring (not having been weather nipped) will come to fruition in all of their glory.The area in which they grow has become far shadier since their last grand performance....
...so I will be thinning the redbud canopy over their heads to get more light through....and hopefully ensure the deep color saturation I enjoyed in past seasons.
Blue, purple, pink, white....I could literally cut bucketfuls in almost any hue. Ah....such wealth.
My best photo bomb ever!
