Then the sun rises and dogwoods bloom

The storm that moved through last night got bored here in Empire. Not much to demolish, so it moved off quickly to the east.

This morning as we drank our coffee, a ruby-throated hummingbird dipped in and sipped from the feeders.

When I stepped down to get the morning paper, I noticed that the dogwood in our yard had decided to make its debut. They had been on the cusp for days...taunting us. Na Na Na Boo Boo. But then, today.

I had to walk around to get a good angle. The sun was just rising over the eastern horizon and doing what it does best in the morning – which is to show us that life is a circle going round and round.

There will be dark times, but then the sun rises, and dogwoods bloom.


  1. And what a glorious sight the dogwood blooming is - for those who pay attention.

  2. Yes like you say life goes on. Nature never skips a beat.

  3. I love your dogwood picture. We still have snow on the ground here but we are having signs of spring.
    I hope you are both staying safe from the Covid-19 virus. I have two acquaintances in Birmingham who are fighting the Covid-19 virus. One is at very high risk and is fighting for his life right now in hospital so we are praying and storming heaven for his complete healing.
    Both my husband and I are well at the moment but we are high risk and are trying to stay safe.
    Hugs, Julia

  4. How pretty and delicate looking but yet so hardy. We can learn from this

  5. I hope when I get out today our dogwoods are showing life. I think they say SPRING to me. Stay safe! Tough times.
