When my husband, Lou, and I moved from Indiana to Connecticut in 1978, we were surprised to discover that there were no redbud trees. Although Connecticut had its own beauty, we always missed the brilliant color of the redbuds in the spring.
During our very first trip to Perry County in April of 1988, our hearts lifted when we saw so many redbud and dogwood trees blooming along Highway 37. Many factors went into our decision to move here, but that welcoming sight had its influence.
