March 27, 2009 Feedsack Friday – Dogwood

I noticed in a news broadcast from Washington, DC the other day (lots of broadcasts from DC lately, no?) that the cherry blossoms are opening. While we’ve already featured cherries in our Feedsack Friday posts, with the advent of early spring I thought today I’d feature another early bloomer, the dogwood. Is your dogwood blooming yet? The buds on ours are fattening, it’ll still be a little while until they burst, along with the daffodils.

These three are different colored versions of the same pattern; but it seems to be the most common one, and I’ve never run out of them. Other dogwood sacks are hard to find and in fact this is all I can find this week. When we get to roses, it’ll be different.

We’re back and forth this week, from the forties to the sixties, nighttime temperatures in the 30’s mostly. Soon spring will settle in, as I frantically work to get the garden ready.
