I snapped a picture of this beautiful trio of redbud trees during my lunch walk today. Aren't they gorgeous?!
Today I learned an interesting fact about them. They are also called "Judas trees" because it's said that Judas hanged himself from a redbud tree after betraying Jesus. The flowering redbud is said to "blush with shame". Poor little tree, why should it blush with shame? It did nothing wrong!
