Bursting

For us, the first half of May has been significantly colder than the historical norm, which has slowed down springs’ arrival. Then we had a month’s worth of rain in five days. As of Tuesday spring finally seems to be here to stay, which means that our redbud tree is bursting with colour!

I pruned our redbud tree a few weeks ago. In tree years the tree has grown from 3 to six feet and graces us with glorious colour every year. It needed pruning to open the structure up a little.

Faye read that you can bring a limb indoors and force it to bloom. Indeed that is happening. The buds have swelled noticeably, already adding welcome colour to our late winter household.
