Well, How About That!

We have had a beautiful spring and the redbuds have been glorious!  And here is where I google "redbud" to include a link with information about the trees and find their scientific name is cercis canadensis.  

Canadensis means 'of Canada', so...interesting, but probably not super blogworthy.  Cercis, however, comes the Greek 'kerkis' which means "a weaver's shuttle" because of the shape of their fruit/seed pods!  

That just made my day :-).

There are six new spring puzzles :-).

They are beautiful and yes it is noteworthy that they are Canadian, eh! Now I will have to look and see if there are any in my area, they are so pretty.
Very appropriate tree for a sheep farm!

That's fascinating! Thank you for sharing. Tidbits of knowledge like this make my day too.

As do your photos. Whether of your animals, other animals or the Kentucky landscape, my heart drinks in the beauty of your photos and is nourished. Thank you!

Well I rather think being “of Canada “ is blog-worthy. Of course I’m biased.
They are simply gorgeous.
