Weekly Photo Challenge: NEW
This is one of my first photos of the new year, taken soon after sunrise on New Year’s Day.
I am happy to see the many plump buds on the tips of these Dogwood branches.
Each bud will open into a delicate white flower in early April. There will be a billowy white profusion of flowers here in a few short weeks.
But on this January morning we see only the fine lacework of the Dogwood’s branches, and a profusion of buds.
And through them, the sky is fresh and new, deeply blue, and giving us good omens for the new year ahead.

“We spend January 1st walking through our lives,
room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done,
cracks to be patched.
Maybe this year, to balance the list,
we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives
…not looking for flaws, but for potential.”
