SkyWatch Friday: Dogwood Buds



The dogwood (Cornus florida) buds are swelling on the trees in our woods, but it will be a couple of weeks or so before they open. Then, they will look like this:

I don't think I've ever had the pleasure of seeing a dogwood in person. They're lovely.

Wow, I've never seen a Dogwood bud before they don't grow here.

It won't be long until there are blooms. My next door neighbor has several dogwoods in her yard, close to our mutual fence line. I always enjoy the blooms.

A lovely sign of spring, along with your serviceberries. I miss both from Virginia, not that anything would be budding this early in Michigan anyway.
