my favorite sign of spring

Young dogwood, flowering in the woods. The surrounding trees still mostly winter-brown, some with a bright green halo of new leaves – and the pink and white blossoms shining at eye level like the trumpet of a herald, announcing the arrival of spring. Ave, cornus florida!
