Ah….the redbud a lovely native leguminous north american small tree.  Widely planted, awesome pollinator pollen and nectar food source…and…very interestingly, it has clear seed pods  until mid summer which allows investigators to look at rates of pollination….could be used as a sentinel and a great citizen science project.  Reader…you should make this happen.  Photo and specimen taken by Helen Lowe Metzman.
