Gracing the lawn, just outside the suites of the Tree Frog Night Inn, is this lovely pink-tinged dogwood. Typically, it blooms in late spring and its blossoms linger for weeks. This year, with our warm fall, we were blessed with a second bloom which contrasts with and complements the vibrant fall colors of the foliage. In general, the Bellingham area and our little part of it have offered up excellent fall color this year, as is often the case. It is an excellent time for photography and watching the exploits of the squirrels and birds as they ready themselves for the impending winter.
