Waxing poetic about the transformation power of fresh flowers in the home is hardly unusual for a blogger. Its probably downright repetitive. But the dogwood trees are blooming outside my window, you guys, and tree branches covered in gorgeous pink, white and green blossoms are too good a topic to pass up. They really do light up a room.
Every year, when the trees explode into bloom, I’m astounded. This is my first spring in a new part of the country, with new varieties of trees (flowering quince!) to ogle and appreciate, and let me tell you the magic is as strong as ever.
