Redbud trees are early bloomers. Thank goodness. My yard is severely drab right now and needed this bit of color. I just read that you can eat the flowers. I haven’t ever tried doing that. I’m not sure I will simply because bees and butterflies feed off the flowers, which don’t last long (no subsequent bloom later) and aren’t all that plentiful to start.

I took these pictures the Sunday before last. At first, I wasn’t too pepped because it was very cloudy. Then I realized that I could turn the cloudy sky into a clean white backdrop.

I did some other shots, most of which did not really work out.

But a few were kind of fun. I call this one “Fancy Flower Business Card.”

Look at that negative space. Think of all the address and phone number action you could put there. EXCITING.
