Sir:

To me, the base of the flowers look red and the ends look pink.

It is always interesting to hear about visual perception differences among people.

Joy, It was across the street in my neighbor's yard. I snuck over there and took a pic. I felt weird walking through their yard! LOL clandestine operations for the blog!

I love Redbuds. I had one in my backyard but the conditions weren't right and it died. I think they grow better in the South. Lucky you!

I have ALWAYS thought they should be called purple buds not redbuds because while the flowers are pink (not red) the buds themselves are purple. glad someone out there agrees with me. ☺ I say we rename ( if only for us) beautiful whatever the name.
