Day 365 — Dogwood Blooms- Haibun Journey Beauty Each Day

Today’s beauty is dogwood blossoms on the trees. I helped a friend plant about two hundred strawberry plants today. Then I came home and my husband and I dug and then laid a stone sidewalk four feet by ten feet. Next I dug around the roses and fertilized them with manure. It was not until I rested on the porch swing that I noticed the white dogwood was in full bloom. The I remembered this was day 365 for my finding beauty each day. The hard work of the day reminded me of the hard work over the past two years writing haibun. The work may be challenging, but it is well worth the effort for me.
