Dogwood Saturday: Week 5

April is about to come to a close.  We’ve enjoyed a warmer than usual month  and though the last few days have been chilly, the dogwood is looking quite lovely.

Today is a mixed bag of sun and clouds in preparation for a cool, rainy Sunday.  But Spring has taken hold and in the last week I’ve seen more and more trees with freshly opened leaves to be admired.  

I expect that the last of the dogwood flowers will hold on for several more days.  I will welcome the sight of them each morning.  They add cheer and balance to my days and are a good way for me to embrace the last month of school, which is often such a whirl of activity that I forget to enjoy the beauty around me.
