Twin Pink Dogwoods in Full Blossom

Is it full blossom or full bloom?

After being at home for so long it feels strange to be in the car.  I drove out today to the Post Office, to deliver and mail some masks to friends and family.  On my way home, I saw these gorgeous pink dogwood trees in full bloom.  Good thing the name of the church is embossed in stone above the doors. I was distracted when I pulled over to take a quick photo of the blossoming trees on my phone.

Christ Lutheran Church in Millvale on Evergreen Road. Perhaps they stood out since it was a gray and gloomy day but these twin dogwoods brightened the landscape and were amazing to see. I did google the Legend of the Dogwood that was in the recesses of my mind , the symbolism of the blossoms and but the legend was debunked as no Dogwood grows in Israel.  I think somewhere there is a postcard in my possession with the legend printed on it.

 

Waiting for Spring

The Spring Equinox is March 20 at 7:02 AM.  Just THREE weeks to go.  I checked the Old Farmer’s Almanac for the official word.

In another 5 weeks, it’ll look like this in our part of the country….I have to keep it in mind.

Blossoms and green grass, bulbs shooting up through the earth. The RedBud will bloom.

Three weeks ’til Official Spring.  This photo was taken two years ago the first week of April.

March is Friday.  I think I have it calculated right.
