Red springtime

Have you ever noticed that things turn red in spring before they turn green? I haven't seen a green leaf on a tree or bush yet, but these are about to burst! Of course we're supposed to get snow tonight. White snow on red twigs - that would be a pretty picture if it wasn't so sad! Last year, we had snow in April too - but in general if you look back to last April we're way behind. (We had daffodils on the green by April 8 and fully-blooming forsythia by the 16th - we are nowhere close to either this year!)

That looks like a red twig dogwood bush. I have several here in Ohio and I make new ones each year by cutting off a branch and inserting it into the ground. It works. Nice photo and commetary is good too.
