Ginsberg Dogwood

It’s the annual Dogwood posting.  Allen’s tree, ceremoniously planted in the yard in St Mark’s Church, New York City, flowering (hopefully!) around this time. – and this year it certainly has! – (actually, lesser-known fact, those “petals” aren’t actually petals at all.
They are modified leaves called “bracts” that surround the small, greenish-yellow, insignificant flowers).

Allen’s birthday coming up on Saturday (and tomorrow – a special surprise! – stay tuned)
