As I look out my office window I see a dogwood tree in full bloom. Other deciduous trees rimming our yard are pushing out new leaves. I love the delicate new growth, for when light hits the paper-thin green tissue, it seems to glow.
This early spring season of growth, however, isn’t all pleasure.
Hold on . . . . just sneezed. Really.
In a little over a month the orange tree in our backyard will finish dropping the fruits of last season and push out blossoms for this one. The smell is divine. It tickles my nose in a good and not-so-good way. Nonetheless, I welcome it.
