Every year, we take a picture with our kids and our redbud tree, on or around April 19th. Here’s 2011’s pictures, here’s 2012’s, and because I forgot to post them the last two years (poor Mark), here are three more year’s worth of redbuds and babies (some of them all grown up!)
Ellie is now allowed to run around the WHOLE house ALL BY HERSELF. She loves it!
We also just found out that redbud flowers are edible (not only edible but really nutritious). So here we are trying them out.
I really am amazed how quickly this tree has grown. We bought it on a whim in 2008 and here it is in 2009.
I especially love how the flowers cling so closely to the branches/trunk.
I suppose it’s pretty great that the kids have grown so much also! 😉
