It is fast approaching the end of May and I have not been out in my garden yet! The spring bug that hit me last month lingered like a relentless suitor. It is a relief to be past all of that.
The Lilacs have bloomed and faded, paving the way for the perennial beds to begin their summer showcase of color. There are plants to transplant or simply dig up because of the threat of a heavy coup in an unplanned area.
My Dogwood is in bloom and I expect it to last through the next week. I received the tree as a gift from four of my sisters when I graduated from college 5 years ago. It is a slow grower but I am savoring the blossoms every year as more blossoms show up on its branches. Such a wonderful reminder of how great and wonderful our God is to shower us each season with natural beauty. It is there in abundance when we look for it. Here is a picture of the Dogwoods offerings this year.
