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.
