Springtime in Rome


Judas Tree

Springtime in Rome means that the Judas trees (albero di Giuda) are in bloom. Pink flower clusters adorn the streets making urban walks a delight. The legend is that Judas Iscariot hanged himself from a tree of this species (Cercis siliquastrum) and thus the name.

But, as we know, beauty is ephemeral. The petals fall and we heartlessly walk on them. And once again our eyes look for something else to consume.
