Prince, Mimi and I took a little tour of the Redbuds in bloom on the Trace last evening before dark. All the pictures were taken after we crossed the big bridge. From beginning our tour from Highway 100 to the exit to Highway 96 both sides of the Trace were covered with these beautiful trees.
When we were driving along I had this nagging thought that God must be kin to Hazel King as she is always saying "When in doubt use purple."
The kitty justice is why name them Redbuds when they are indeed Purple.

BEAUTIFUL!!! Maybe someone was a wee bit color blind and Redbud flowed better than Purplebud.
You do have a beautiful blog. MB

Dear Lady Di ~~ The trees look very
lovely whatever their name or color. Glad you and Prince took Mimi for such a nice drive. I am so glad you are pleased with the award and I really do value your friendship and your stories and the things you send me do light up my life. Take care,
dear friend, Love, Merle.

Your photos are awesome as usual! The redbud is our state tree, we have a few more days before they are in bloom. I hope they are as beautiful as the ones in your photos. Just a thought here...the actual "bud" is red on these trees (I have several) They bloom purple. Have a grand day!(hows the ear?)

Lady Di,

Whatever they are called, they are beautiful. Are they fragrant? We have similar trees that bloom in May and they are highly fragrant. I'm glad you enjoyed your ride.

Thanks for the compliment. My blog is not half as beautiful as yours.

We are having lots of rain so every thing is green at the moment. It is beautimus. Peace

Lady Di Tn said...

Thanks and I value your friendship also. It is so nice to have such good bloggin friends all over the globe. Peace

Thanks I did not know the bud was red. I guess whoever named it was really surprised when it bloomed purple. LOL. Peace

I have never smelled a redbud so I must venture out and put my nose to the buds. We do have some wonderful blooming things now that have heavenly sence. Vibernam (kin to the snowball and probably spelled incorrectly) lilacs, buttercups. You must take some pictures in May to share. Peace

Thanks the colors in Middle Tn are now showing up at all corners. Peace

Thanks they are really pretty this time of year. I always laugh at the name since they are purple and our Purple finches are Red not purple. Go figure. Peace
