The Redbud trees have burst into bloom. Tulsa experienced some periods of unusually cold weather in March, including several late spring snow storms. As a result our spring blooming season was delayed by a week or two. Over the last week or so we have enjoyed some sun and warm weather and it seems like everything burst into bloom at once. The Redbud is Oklahoma's state tree and grows wild here in addition to being a favorite ornamental tree for urban landscaping. There are several varieties, the one in my garden is the old-fashioned native variety. They are spectacular when in full bloom and give off a light but very pleasant scent.
