Redbud of Virginia

If you are out in the country in northern Virginia, redbud is everywhere, lining the roads and highways and edges of the woods. Such a beautiful tree, with its bright pink tiny flowers crawling up its branches. It does not take kindly to cutting and looks limp in a vase and won't last. The tree can stand tall and proud, sending its splays of pink out into the sky in more tame settings or, since it proliferates and always bends toward the sun out of the trees around it, the pink just peeks out.
