Eastern Red Bud


This Eastern Red Bud is located at, The Forest Park Nature Center, in Peoria Heights, Illinois.  You can barley see a portion of the A-frame visitors Center in the lower left of the image.  The unscented Red Buds bloom in April and then the blossoms quickly disappear.  I took this image a number of years ago – pulled it from my archives.

    1. Thank you, Robyn. When they first bloom, at least in Central Illiois, they appear a cross between pink and purple – if that’s possible. I always appreciate your interest in Elm Drive Images.
