Redbud + West Virginia = Spring

So here is how it is in West Virginia, they say if the Red bud Tree is blooming spring has arrived in West Virginia!!! Could have fooled me this morning as it was 40 degrees!!! Anyway I wanted to share this lovely tree with you.  Now I see it as purple in color, but all of West Virginia call it Red Bud?  Hopefully if you click on it the colors will show through.

We had a wonderful Easter as I hoped you all did.  We went to my oldest daughter’s for lunch and spent the afternoon.  Here is a picture of 4 of my 6 grandchildren taken in their Easter Frocks!!  Ma Maw and Pa Paw had to get into the picture too.
The twins will be seniors next year and their brother between them is in college and the other little guy is Christian who was adopted by my youngest daughter, he is 12 .  I didn’t get to see the other two grandchildren for Easter as they were working.  I didn’t get to see little Hayden either, hopefully his mommy took pictures for me to share with you.  He is suppose to come over today and if the weather will cooperate I’m going to let him have an Easter Egg Hunt, or at least try. He is 17 months old now so maybe he will get the idea?? Will let you know how that turns out! LOL
Take care dear friends and have a great day/week.

    Beautiful trees and beautiful family! And look how cute you look in that picture! Sadly Yesterday after my shower, I noticed the scissors laying there and now have VERY short hair. I couldn\’t resist cutting it. Oh well, it will grow out! hahaIt looks like your spring has sprung a lot!! We are just now seeing the crocus go away and barely the trees budding out!

    We have redbud trees here too but they are not blooming yet. They are such a beautiful tree.Your family is lovely!Have fun today with Hayden.

    They grow up so fast, don\’t they?!!! It seems like just the other day that M was toting around that basket looking for eggs…We have lots of buds here too and the mosquitoes have put in an appearance as well. It\’s actually predicted to rain later in the week. I remember having a redbud tree in our back yard in Michigan where I grew up. They are gorgeous but I\’m really allergic to them. Spring has sprung and summer seems to be crowding in here already—it\’s supposed to hit 90 here today.

    Are you getting the rain today like we are here? OH well, it makes for green, green grass and beautiful flowers and trees.Be well. Peace

    I love the red bud trees! The pictures of your grandkids all dressed up are lovely. I like "Ma Maw" Sometimes for kicks me and the Hubby talk about what we want our grandbabies to call us, but some say really the oldest grandbaby decides that.
