  2. The Eastern (Western) Redbud is such a magnicent-looking tree. Such striking images you’ve presented of the flower-buds contrasted against the rugged bark and lichen. Sorry that I haven’t visited you in ages, but I’ve been dealing with pain issues that have taken over my life. Hope you have a wonderful day, Arati.

    • Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts Olga. I understand how dealing with pain can be debilitating and how it has taken over your life. I imagine you might be longing for some relief and ease.
      I’m glad you enjoyed seeing these images and I agree about this tree being magnificent-looking. There are quite a few of them in this area an I have enjoyed photographing them every Spring. I love the way the flowers grow straight from the trunk, like little bouquets.
      I am moving out of this area at the end of the month and seeing these trees blossom in the Spring is one of the things I will miss.
      May you be well Olga.

  4. Beautiful, Arati. The flowers look like members of the orchid family growing as epiphytes on the tree. –Curt
