Purple

Here's a welcomed bit of color on a dreary day. I passed this tree on my way to class yesterday at the University of Iowa.
Anyone know what kind of tree this is?

Of course, by the time class started, the sun had started forcing its way through the cloud cover. It was a nice treat to walk out of the anthropology/archaeology building and into the sunshine! And today, Iowa City's weather should be pretty nice and spring-like! (Though the wind gusts may make me a bit of a nervous driver as I make my way on I-380!) There's a small chance of a thunderstorm later today. I hope it happens; we could use the water!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to being able to take "The Spring Shot 2012" pretty soon! (Here's "The Winter Shot 2012," to refresh your memory.)

Beautiful redbud tree, Sonya. I wish the blooms lasted longer, though.

Glad you and Livie enjoyed the photos of Tuki. :)

What a lovely shade of purple! I don't know what those trees are, but they are really lovely.

I see those around here too and wonder the same thing. I was hoping someone commented here with the name of it. I will have to check back : )

This is excellent! Even if dreary - the purple flowers really stand out. Great job. =)
