Plant: Redbud blossoms...spring stunner...

I had heard a lot about the glorious beauty of redbuds (Cercis occidentalis). Yesterday, as I was ambling in a park, I got  to see this leafless redbud tree. The branches were covered with tiny pink blossoms, heralding the arrival of spring.

What a breathtaking sight they create!!



The redbud show in SDSU campus...........

In Mission San Diego campus.........

Autumnal foliage..........

In certain cultures, the tender flowers are consumed as a seasonal delicacy.......I have relished it in my childhood in India...it tastes really good......
