05.20.2016 Sometimes it’s good when the paper gets delivered late

A few times now, I’ve walked to the end of the driveway looking for the morning paper and, not finding it the first time, go out a bit later and find a lovely sky which I have shared a few times previously.  I think yesterday morning offered a nice one.

Frontyard-Sunrise-051916-960This has been our best year for the dogwood seen making a slight appearance at the left. Behind me is a pink variety that is flowering like never before.  You’d think I would photograph them, wouldn’t you?  🙂

  1. I, too, have noticed that the Dogwood are exceptional this year. Especially good news because I remember that about fifteen years ago people were saying that they would soon all be gone due to blight. Lovely photograph.

    That’s a beautiful dogwood. They’re far more common in East Texas, which is about the edge of its range. I’m told that where they show up in Houston, they generally have been planted. That makes sense, since they do best as understory trees and don’t like wet, clay soils.

    If I could see sunrises like that from my front yard, I might subscribe to a paper, just for the pleasure of going out and picking it up.

    • Interesting that you say that about dogwood preferences. The one in the image gets full sun all day and is planted in clay soil, although it does drain fairly well.

      Even better than this view is the aroma that I am greeted with as I open the garage door and the scent of our Daphne comes drifting in. Since I cannot include smell with my images, the light and color will have to suffice. 🙂

        Well, it could be that your “full sun all day” and our “full sun all day” are different. You’re at about 42N, and we’re at 29N, and climatologically, your average highs are close to being our average lows. That all could make a difference. Here, the ladies walk with parasols, and dogwoods use other trees as parasols.


      • True. Our USDA zone is far removed from yours.

    Did the dogwood respond to the milder winter?

  4. I’m surprised that way up there in New Hampshire you have the same newspaper deliver I do in Austin.


  5. Beautiful photo of the early morning, Yes, you should photograph more pics of your own flora.
