Last year my hubby and I were tree shopping and we each had requirements for the new tree. His #1 requirement was "no fruit"! My #1 requirement was a little different....I wanted a tree that bloomed in the spring and didn't drop anything sticky, poky, or just plain annoying. We came across a Purple Robe Locust at a local nursery and agreed that it was the perfect addition to our backyard.
One year later, it is loaded with blooms and looks gorgeous!
Some of the branches were sagging because they were so loaded with flowers. Here are some close up shots.
Hope your yard is full of spring blooms! xoxo
