Blooming Redbuds decorate our hills and mountains with a lovely lavender this time of year.
I took these pictures about two weeks ago.
The Redbuds look especially good alongside the graceful, white Dogwoods.
On close inspection these blooming trees are a-buzz with bees and butterflies. When I snapped this photo below, I caught a metallic green bee just as it left a Redbud blossom.
Redbuds love growing on limestone ground. That's one reason why we see many Redbud-covered hills while driving along in the ridge-and-valley section of Pa.
Lavender-tinged hills are truly a beautiful sight.
I just had to post about the Redbuds today, since it snowed much of the day. The mountain tops were white but the valleys were still a spring light-green color. I kept thinking about what Redbuds would look like against a snowy background... but I stayed in the valley... lavender with green is nice.
