R for Redbud Tree

Cercis canadensis (eastern Redbud) is a large deciduous shrub or small tree, native to eastern North America from Southern Ontario, Canada south to northern Florida but can thrive as far west as California.

The Redbud blossoms have peaked.

 There's a big bumblebee in there somewhere.
 
A nice shape for Christmas decorating.
The upright spruce is away from the house and doesn't block the window.

  7. It must be like pink snow on the ground when the petals fall. Very pretty, I bet.
