A quick look at my garden journal from recent years reveals that the dogwood won’t get serious about showing off its flowers until late April. Sometimes, May has arrived before the flowers show themselves. But it’s been sunny and warm for the last few weeks and I suspect this year will bring earlier blooms. One thing is clear: I am ready to start the dogwood watch!
The buds are present in abundance, still tight against the cold nights.
I see the potential for dogwood flowers here and I am so very excited for the coming season of blooms.
