Redbud Trees in Spring

If you follow this blog,
then  you know that the two redbud trees
outside the garage door
got their start as tiny seedlings gleened from the flower beds
around my mother-in-law's house.
In 11 years, those tiny sprouts have  grown tall enough to be visible
through a second floor window.
Two years ago, they bloomed right on March 15th.
Last year, just a little later.
This year: April 2nd.
I walked into the room this morning
and noticed the view through the window:
redbud branches pinked and purpled with blossoms.
Even after all these years,
my heart skips a little beat
when I see redbud trees in the spring.
