The Wednesday Window | l’Arbe de Judée

The Wednesday Window - Judas Trees at Callaloo Soup Blog-1

These gorgeous trees known as l'arbre de Judée, or Judas Trees, are blooming all over the countryside right now, and they are stunning! The legend goes that this is the kind of tree Judas Iscariot hung himself from, hence the name. Morbid or not, this is definitely going on my list of trees to have once we have a permanent garden!
