Dogwood Monday: Week 4
Half of the dogwood tree in my backyard has sprouted its tiny flower blooms. I expect that by next Monday's report, the rest of the tree will get in on the blooming action.
I love the way these blooms look so delicate even though I know dogwood is a lot stronger than it seems. That element of spring ---- the appearance of delicacy but an undergirding of strength ---- is part of the great charm of season and yet another reason to welcome spring.
I am with the resistance for as long as it takes. I think the GOP-enabled Donald Trump has become a permanent stain on our national integrity. I like to read (I just finished Anya Seton’s The Hearth and Eagle), garden, cook, and talk.
I love… making Valentines, garden plans, my amaryllis bulb, stripes, my new rug, crepes with nutella, inquisitive 7th graders, Friday nights, daffodil bouquets, lengthening days, homemade soup, front porch plans, hot tea, playing cards, southern accents, note pads, watching the sunrise, teaching about Thomas Jefferson, morning coffee, time for a workout.
