Poppin’ fresh

Readers of a certain age will remember Poppin’ Fresh, the Pillsbury Doughboy. Likewise, readers of all ages, and especially those who have lived in or visited southwest Missouri, will be pleased to know that, much like a tube of crescent rolls wanged on a kitchen counter, the local dogwoods officially “popped forth” suddenly on Sunday, April 3, 2016, their eruption following by approximately two weeks that of their their redbud cousins. This redbud/dogwood combo makes any drive through the Ozarks just about achingly lovely.

Our own dogwood, never one to get in a hurry when it’s not absolutely necessary, is currently in the process of popping; his glory should be fully revealed within the next day or two.

I love spring!
