135/365 – A day for nature

Red bud, the most beautiful tree.

Eastern Redbud, North America's most beautiful tree. (Cercis canadensis)

It was the third morning in a row I wanted to record the redbud tree.  One day,  it was raining; the next, I didn’t have the camera and was late.  Today, I pulled over on one of Madison’s one-way arterial street and contemplated this tree.  My impression has been of the magnificent tree glowing in the morning sun — then I saw the telephone pole, the streetlight pole, and wires and whatnot.  Oh well, that’s the context and it makes the tree’s beauty even more valuable as a contrast to urban grit.
