Redbud Winter. Yep it’s true. It does exist.
It’s in the Cumberland Mountains already. Thursday and Friday were cold enough to turn the heat back on, but today has warmed up even more than yesterday. As I load the pictures I’ve taken, I remember how much I loved the older folks talk about the different ‘winters’ each spring. Always cold, but always beautiful in the colors it awakened. So here is a quick pic for the color of Redbuds.
It’s so warm out! The trees are getting green on the base of Cumberland Mountains! The land is beautiful with small plants waking up from a cold winter’s nap.
Although still covered with leaves, the heat is there. Coats are a thing of recent memory. But be warned! The Spring ‘winters’ are not far behind so keep those coats out for a bit longer! There’s one white flowering tree bloomed in the picture. Do you see it?
Even with the sun setting, you can ride with the windows down and the wind whipping around you as you enjoy the scenery God made for all to enjoy.
