Purple Rain

.
Twelve miles, twenty kilometers southwest of the Arch, right in front of my house on a wet spring Sunday. The flowering tree in the foreground is pink dogwood. The petals on the sidewalk and street are from a redbud tree, which are in bloom all over St. Louis.

Beautiful. See the dogwoods are just opening there. I have white petals all over my sidewalk and yard. The storm finished most of ours off. Happy Spring!
