I couldn’t resist posting one last beautiful photo from Viktoria Mullin. I’m guessing the tree is a redbud (Cercis canadensis, USDA Hardiness Zones 4-9). Viktoria says, “This is a little spring sunset pond in Wadsworth Falls State Park in Middlefield, Connecticut. We live not so far from that beautiful park, and I admire wandering by the forest and around Wadsworth Mansion with my camera. I’ve found many interesting and unfamiliar plants and trees. I photograph them in different seasons and check their names with books about New England nature. We have a little library at home, so I learn the nature of the North America and step by step make a photo collection of its wonderful plants. What can I say… is really good and beautiful for those who are able to see and to feel it.” Thanks again, Viktoria!
