Dogwood Winter

I guess I'm beginning to sound like my southern grandmothers. But its that "spell" of weather after it was warmed up and everyone got their spring/summer clothes out (you can go from winter to summer clothing here in a day) and it gets cold again. Then the dogwoods start to bloom.

My mom is getting better. She is in rehab. This has been a slow recovery for her. She has speech, occupational and physical therapy. Her appointment with the oncologist is next Friday (my granddaughter's birthday).
The azeleas are JUST beginning to bloom.
