I realized this week that the little tree in the front yard is a dogwood, maybe my most favorite springtime tree. It’s been a lovely surprise for this last of our first seasons in our new home.
I’ve been spending a little time outside in the evening on these warm days, getting some nature time while trying to avoid the high morning tree pollen. And wow, have those trees come out in the last couple weeks. The lush summertime will be here before long. Even in the midst of human chaos, nature is unfolding right on schedule. I take some comfort in that, and in thoughts of seasons to come. - 1 hour ago
