Eastern Redbuds ….. I love them. Many of people find the crocus and forsythia to be the harbinger of Spring but I know Spring has really arrived and Summer is soon coming when the redbuds are in bloom. The Cercis canadensis (Eastern Redbud) below are to be found in front of the St. Catharines Library on St. James St. just North of King St. These photos were taken 17 May 2011.
The photos don’t do these trees justice. Go see them for yourself and while you are there, register at the library. Contrary to popular belief, books are not passe.
