Okay, okay - I know, another tree picture but I can't help myself. They are absolutely beautiful this year. Well they are every year but they seem to be lingering longer and be more full this year. Maybe I just notice them more because I'm constantly seeking photo ops. Either way, I just had to take a picture of this red-bud tree. I have no idea why they are called red-bud trees when they are pinkish/purple.
