It isn’t spring until the dogwood blooms. I have a certain amount of anxiety about it. The tree had buds quite early and we had a couple freezes after that. Then it blooms but the flowers are a kind of dirty yellow at first. Will we get a big thunderstorm that knocks them all off before they’re fully realized? That happens some years.
This year, the dogwood came into full beauty just in time for the “D” post in the A-Z challenge. Good timing dogwood!
Wherever I end up, I’m going to plant dogwood trees. It just wouldn’t be spring without them.
