Oh, the dogwoods

Mar 27, 2012

Spring is here, oh, so here.

The thin dogwoods are splendid, leaning out from their protected perimeter placements with their splendid covering of delicate white flowers, as if to say, “We’re in the shadows most of the year, but we’re here, and Spring is our season, too.”

A couple of summers ago, Erin and I planted a delicate dogwood sapling in center of the flower bed beneath our front porch. This year, for the first time, it flowered.
