The unusual winter we’ve had has evolved into a banner spring for any plants that blossom. I assume you’ve noticed how glorious all the blooming trees look? I can’t remember when the redbuds, magnolias, dogwoods, etc., have put on such a show.
This Chicago spring reminds of me of the two years I spent in Washington, D.C., where spring really exists (unlike here where the seasons almost immediately segue from winter to summer.) The dogwood in front of our house has never looked better or more laden with blossoms. I thought it was blog worthy. I hope your tree is too!
