The Blue Ridge Parkway is a beautiful place in the spring. It took me all day to drive it because I had to keep stopping to take pictures!
The most beautiful photo to start my day. Love the delicacy of the pink and haze of thin branches.
Lovely. It’s a strange color, always surprising. This rendition, with the balance of green and gray and all the detail, is nicely subtle.
It’s very much inspired by Eliot Porter.
One of my all time favorite sights—-a redbud in bloom in the spring. Such a delicate lacy look, brings thoughts of lace and lovely womanly features to my mind……
The Red Bud has naturalized in the foothills east of Chico CA. It can be seen along the major roads in the Paradise and Magalia Area which locally is called The Ridge.
Les, those should all be the native Cercis occidentalis
As a child my mother always told me redbuds were junk trees that were attractive one week a year. WHAT? The tortured habit, the heart shaped leaves, and last but not least the frosting blossoms which usher in dogwood blooms make it a mighty tree indeed!
