On the road between here and there is a forest.  A pretty mundane forest, really.  But the interplay of springtime dogwoods scattered amongst the conifers is enchanting.  Steps from the road, freshly opened leaves appear almost as a flock of butterflies alighting on the bare branches to keep the flowers company.  Magic beckons.  Darcie Sternenberg

It was an overcast and drizzly morning with pockets of fog as I drove out to visit a spot next to an old cemetary that I vaguely remembered having dogwood in bloom this time of year.  I was inspired to go out there from an article and set of wonderful images by Darcie Sternenberg  http://www.DarcieSternenberg.com  in the latest issue of LensWork magazine.  Below is the magic I found this morning
