This week, the dogwood flowers are nice and large.
Last summer's hurricane felled a tree in my neighbor's yard. That tree shaded a good deal of my driveway and was also much larger than the dogwood, so my tree was forced to grow in the shade. Once the neighbor's tree was gone, the dogwood got to enjoy a lot more sunshine.
And the tree has taken advantage of the improved growing climate. That's happy.
Each day with Donald Trump in power is a day we are losing what’s left of our better selves. I am embarrassed and ashamed of my nation and look for hope in resistance. I like to read (I just finished Ta-Nehesi Coates’ Between The World and Me), garden, cook, and talk.
I love… lobster bisque, eyebrow-shaping gel, NPR, tulips, Spring lists, flower prints, bunnies, paper crafts, Easter eggs, homemade waffles, family traditions, sunlight, flower seed packets, shoots of green in chilly Spring soil, pink cardigans, chirping birds, hair ties, Spring Break plans, sunlight, sleeping in, and time for a sweaty workout.
