Red Bud, Red Pod
Cercis occidentalis – Western Redbud
From rocky soils in the foothills of the Sierras. Bright red seed pods sure do look ripe for the picking. Hap says we still have to wait before gathering the seeds. Something about just the right amount of ripeness.
Now there also appears to be another flower starting, getting ready to open.
And the plant in the background is an Acacia.
