Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 313: Flowering Dogwood

Some of the trees have started to bloom around downtown Sac, including what I think is a flowering dogwood, a sample of which is pictured here:

The cornus florida is not native to California, according to Wikipedia, but the web site of the National Gardening Association has a very brief entry about flowering dogwood in West Sacramento, so I'm thinking that my guess about the type of tree may actually be correct.
