Yarn from A Redbud's Sweater


In other years, I've seen this tree so covered 
in tiny flowers that it looked as though 
it was wearing a beautiful pink sweater 
to protect itself from the chilly spring mornings.
Maybe I just got there too late in the season.
I had to remind myself that I no longer had those
pictures and went by to check on the trees.
This was almost all that was left, looking as though
only a bit of yarn from the sweater remained
after the tree had taken it off.

Redbuds were kind of late this year and have only been out for about a week. I think the late frost may have kept this one from donning its "sweater".

It looks very delicate.
