WILCOX STUDIO -- old hand-painted sign on brick building
My Dad loved redbud or Judas tree, and everywhere we lived, which was a lot of places, he planted a sprig that became a tree. Love the ribbon of road. I remember them vividly and like to visit my daughter who lives down such a country lane. I love to visit her for more reasons than that of course.
Your picture are just beautiful!!!!!!!!! I love checking out your blog. :-)Antique Rose
Greatma -- thanks you so much for the very nice comment about my photos. I'm glad you stopped by. We do have something in common -- I'm a junker too. -- barbara
Absolutely beautiful, and your spring is so far ahead of ours. I saw only the beginnings of Skunk Cabbage just today. I'm experiencing a bit of spring with your help.
Dianne -- Did not know that redbuds were known as Judas trees. I know they grow well here in KY. Three signifiers of spring for me is peepers, redwinged blackbird calls and last but not least the redbuds in bloom.I have followed your occasional family stories -- you write them so well -- barbara
Bill -- glad I could help your yearning for spring. I figure you are a bit behind KY but it should be arriving soon as the skunk cabbage is a harbinger. Thanks -- barbara
What a lovely picture!! Wish I were there.
Redbuds are so beautiful in Kentucky!
Barbara, Your photo captures the feel of driving in Kentucky right now wonderfully. We drove to southern Illinois today and the interstate was lined with the redbuds and dogwoods starting to bloom. The winding up and down of country roads much better. Wisteria blooming here in western kentucky. I think I have forgotten winter already.
daphnepurpus -- Glad you liked the redbuds -- thanks -- barbara
June -- If you were here I think you would be in awe like I am now of what I am seeing in nature. I've been here three years and I'm still blown away when I ride through the countryside during spring. Thanks -- barbara
Farmchick -- Redbuds and dogwoods make the woods spark -- yes they are so lovely! Thanks -- barbara
Grampy -- What a beautiful drive. With all the redbuds at peak it had to be awesome. The show does make us forget winter quickly. Thanks -- barbara
Ooooooh! Pretty, pretty!!! No words needed! What a lovely photo!Elora
Oh, how beautiful! Redbuds are borderline hardy around here and I've never seen a display like that. Just lovely.
Elora -- I imagine you get lovely redbud displays in your area too. They are lovely. Thanks -- barbara
Sheri -- When I lived in the Midwest redbuds were not very prevalent -- I don't think they are all that hardy in the North. They are abundant in the woods and edges in KY. Thanks -- barbara
Beautiful country road! And I love your greenhouse pitures in the next post.
I love redbuds! there is a stretch of road right before you get into Ripley that has lots and lots of redbuds along it. They are in bloom now, too.
