Today it's to get up to the high 80.s

had one in last two gardens Kath. They are extremely brittle, so very vulnerable to winds. Plus, not warm enough here for them to flower very much, and leaves not out till June, and off really early in the autumn. Gave up in the end...not worth it. Stunning trees though!

Wikipedia lists several different species in common cultivation & it seems the Eastern Redbud is a slightly smaller tree than the one we see here in Europe which is Cercis siliquastrum or Judas tree. Another difference it seems is that this tree has slightly more pointed leaves than the European one.

There is a Judas tree at the bottom of our street & I went to have a look at it the other day (well, evening as I took our daughter's dog out for a walk as it was staying the night with us) & although it is only in bud at the present moment, it looked like a pinkish haze from a distance. I took a photo up close but the buds don't show up well so close up - it didn't occur to me when I saw the tree from a distance to take a photo of it there & then.
