Dogwood Monday: Week 5

Five weeks into our early spring finds us awash in mild days and spring greenery.  In terms of duration, this is the most consistently pleasant spring I've experienced in New Jersey.  I'm getting ready to plant my vegetable and cut flower garden and we've enjoyed plenty of time outside.  All of my perennial plants are coming along.  But you're here for the dogwood and the news is good.  Half of the dogwood blooms opened up just in time for Easter.
The other half are hard at work and will likely open by next week.
It's like Mother Nature is using spring to help me to celebrate my happy heart.
