Redbud July . . . (Cercis canadensis) A native of North America.
A native member of the Pea Family, notice the abundant pods ripening
on this Redbud. While certainly not as showy as their much-loved
flowers, on a rainy day, after a dry spell of many weeks, I find
the different shapes and greens very pleasing to the eye.
Here is a view of the same tree just two months ago: Redbud May
And three months ago: Redbud April
And here's a little meditation on seeing or observation, and talent:

Talent? Everyone appreciates the
showy brilliance, but few care to follow the slow,
steady ripening of the seed.
And finally, you might enjoy listening to a little celtic
called REDBUD SPRING [REQUIRES QuickTime];
it was composed especially for young people to perform. | score |
