Some of you are new to my blog and may not be familiar with Bacon’s Castle. Here’s a link that will give you some information about this historic landmark. I also have a Bacon’s Castle category, where you’ll find several earlier posts about “the Castle” and its connection to my family.
My son, Marshall, and I were in the area (less than a half hour from our respective homes) on Monday, so we stopped by to see Bacon’s Castle in her spring finery.
She didn’t disappoint.
The dogwoods were in full bloom.
Marshall spotted this single bloom right up against the tree and snapped this picture.
This is the dialogue we imagined:
“You have to bloom at the end of a branch. You can’t bloom there.”
To which the little bloom replied: “Oh yes, I can. Watch me.”
No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow. (Proverb)
