A Dogwood's Year

After an early bloom and an untimely freeze, I didn't expect much of Spring this year. But it has surprised me. The hyacinths are wafting, the lilacs are trying (I have three blooms this year, up one from last year) and the dogwood, well, it's something else entirely.

I remember when we would have four or five flowers on this tree. And now, it has burst into life and threatens to overcome the mailbox if there isn't some judicious pruning.

Until there is, here's the shaggy, unruly tree in all its gleaming,white 2017 glory.
