On our walk this morning I stopped at the dogwood in our front yard.  A few weeks ago when the temps toyed with the mid-80s the dogwoods were tempted to bloom, but mine were too smart to be teased. Even though the limb tips were fat as ticks, they held back.

It's a good thing they did because the temps last night dipped into the upper 20s. Frost was on my windshield this morning.

I could almost hear the dogwoods chanting - Na Na Na Boo Boo, you didn't fool me. They are in the starting blocks for when the spring makes its appearance.

The picture below, I shot a few years ago.


  1. Dogwood in the spring is a wonderful sight for sure ! hope you have many wonderful blossoms !

  2. From a child I have loved the dogwoods. They do SAY SPRING!

  3. What lovely blooms. I'd love to have a Dogwood. Only 6 days and so many hours and minutes to spring 2018.
    It's still snowing here but the winds have subsided, thank goodness.
    Hugs, Julia

  4. So happy they held their ground and buds! I too look forward to their beauty every Spring. I love driving by the wooded areas and seeing those white blossoms shining through! We have a few here at the Pines and I love them!

  5. That time in the sun sounds restorative and just plain WONDERFUL.
