Your Weekly Dogwood: Week 4

We are at the start of our third week of daytime temps in the 70s.  The nights have been cooler, with temps as cool as the low 40s and 50s.  It's sleeping weather par excellence and I love the sound of the night as I tuck under my quilt by the open window each evening.  In the backyard, the dogwood tree is taking on more and more color, a reddening coat of leaves to celebrate the season.
Days and nights like these are all too fleeting.  Soon enough, a sweater won't be enough to ward off the chill and the leaves will begin to fall.  But the sublime blue of the early fall sky in the afternoon tells me that we have a few more warm afternoons ahead of us.
I'll take it.
