  1. no, this is my usual stomping ground. I don’t know why I never noticed them before –the red osier dogwood you mean?–, especially since they’ll probably have blossoms. Maybe because we’re having such a slow spring, I’m not distracted by actual wildflowers and have more brainpower to look at bark.
