Late afternoon, redbud reflected in the glass table.

Windows Window

The symmetry is almost scary. Was the tree planted on a direct line from the window, or was the house built on a direct line from the tree? I'm guessing the former, but would be more impressed with the latter.

It's a shame you didn't get a vertical picture that included just the windows and the reflection.

Lindsey: there's a vertical one in the photoset if you click through the picture to Flickr.

Portsider: the trees a so much younger than the house that it makes your question funny. But I did line them up with the windows when I had them plainted about five years ago. The house is 80 years old.

"But I did line them up with the windows when I had them plainted about five years ago."

An extremely important element of garden design known as "line of force."

Gorgeous pics! btw, Ann, if you have places for them in your yard, I think you would enjoy the following:

White Redbud

Appalachian Red

and Tennessee Pink

With it's four-season appeal, our native Cercis canadensis is arguably the most beautiful ornamental tree on the entire planet.
