Dogwood Monday: April 8

Last weekend was warm and sunny with mostly clear skies; the sort of spring weekend that I dream about on icy winter days.  At this point in our cold spring, we're short not just warmth but also some rain, which is further holding up the progression of blooms.  The dogwood and its relations in the backyard are still at work, of course, but progress is slow.
In my neighborhood, I've seen a tulip tree beginning to bloom.  The daffodils are under way. This morning's brilliant pink and orange sunrise comes with a forecast  of unusual warmth for the week.  If we could just add some warm rain to the mix, we'd be in business.  And so we wait.
