It's Dogwood Time
When Joyce Kilmer wrote
that he had never seen a poem as lovely as a tree,
he must have been referring to a dogwood in full bloom.
I noticed today that the dogwoods around my part of the Shire
are loaded with blooms.
The early flowers are still a rich yellow cream color,
but with another day or two of good weather,
they will turn pure white.
And other dogwood trees will show off blossoms of pink.
I can't wait.
