JUDAS TREE

These are in bloom all over Modica. 

Such an inauspicious name for such a lovely tree.

Thanks. Although I've heard of the Judas Tree, I can't remember seeing one before. It certainly is beautiful.

Beautiful. I have never seen one. Thanks!

Yes indeed, it's a beautiful tree. So nice to see the spring in Modica!

Beautiful - we have one in our churchyard but it won't be out for another month or so. An inauspicious name indeed for the tree that legend says Judas used to hang himself. There's a garden near us where they grow all the plants and trees mentioned in the Bible - fascinating.

Hi, Nick and Claudia. I hade never seen one till I came here, either. Hi, fullet. Yes, spring is lovely here. Hi, Sally. That must be a fascinating garden that you have nearby. I think so, too, WW, Cherie and jams. Hi, Mutley. So do I!

We planted one of these at our last house in Vetralla, but it sadly did not survive. Maybe we should try again as they have such a beautifully deep coloured blossom.

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Hi, LindyLouMac. What a pity. But I think you should try again.

LindyLouMac said...

Yes, I think we will try and plant one next autumn if we can find one in a local nursery.

I agree, it is a beautiful tree, but could do with a prettier name.

Hi again, LindyLouMac. I do hope you find one. I'll be interested to read about its progress if you do. Hi, Ellee. Yes, such a pity about its name.
