Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is a redbud. This “tree” grew near my house in Maryland. In fact, they covered most of the mountainsides in Allegheny County. (I realize that the pictures I include in my posts usually have nothing to do with what I'm posting. They usually have everything to do with how I feel.)
Out of 23 votes in my recent poll (How Important Are Author Photos?) 18 votes were for “so-so” on up to “essential.” Apparently, it is pretty important for an author to allow this connection. Having seen how the results were leaning, I have already updated my profiles accordingly. I do not think I will be putting my picture and bio on my books just yet, however. Maybe someday.
Thank you to all participants! The drawing for Deception will take place May 15th with the winner being announced the following day.
