The Redbuds Came Early This Year in Kansas
The Kansas landscape came alive early this Spring with many days of above normal temperatures in late March and early April. It is nearly mid April now, and the Redbud flowers that are typically blooming at this time have already appeared and vanished! Gone are also the Flowering Pear Tree blossoms that come to life when the warm air settles in. Look around and you will still see some tulips, but probably not for much longer!
I went for a walk in Junction City, Kansas on April 1, 2012 while the Redbuds were still in bloom and captured this image before the blooms wilted and blew away in the Kansas wind. How is Spring where you are at?
