Last week’s profusion of dogwood flowers has begun to yield to tiny green leaves. The tree is still lovely to behold and it joins pink and white dogwoods all over New Jersey in its celebration of Spring.
Day by day, the flowers are replaced by leaves and I am reminded that Spring is lovely because it’s so ephemeral.
Soon enough, Mother Nature will provide something new for me to enjoy. And in the meantime, there are still dogwood flowers.
