Pale pink pinwheels

Whirligigs, old and new

These powder-pink blossoms of a small flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) look to be just past their prime, with rusty smudges like age spots on an old lady’s hands. Still, the tree has some youth about it as those same plump pinwheel petals might spin off to play with the next warm breeze.
