Morning Has Broken

Morning has broken into springtime pastels. In the foreground, the Bradford Pear is in full bloom. In the background, the redbud lends a lavender hue. (I have always wondered why it is called redbud!)
Now is the time to watch the sun rise and see how it brings colors to life.

Oh, how absolutely beautiful!

I have a redbud out on my front lawn and it will bloom nicely come spring. Yep! It's spring but not here yet! Still lots of snow here.

I also wonder why they call them redbuds when they're lavender. Oh, well.

This is so beautiful....it just makes you say "ahhhh", doesn't it?

I agree about the redbuds....they always seemed like purplebuds to me. :)

WOW! Gorgeous and inspiring! Hopeful and lovely. Nice colors, so pretty and soft.

We still have snow and it's supposed to snow more today.

I had a redbud in my yard at my old house (not long ago) and it was truly lovely--I also had a dogwoood, also lovely, BUT the winters were hard on the redbud, and some of the branches died off every year.

Beautiful photograph!

I really like all of the muted colors.

I love redbuds. They are host plant to the Henry's Elfin, one of the earliest emerging butterflies.
