Dogwood ice cream/Sense of accomplishment

Cornelian Cherry
Cornus mas
CORNACEAE, the Dogwood family

Cornelian cherry gelato?! This is not an opportunity to ponder for long while in line at Staccato Gelato. Or a time to start explaining to your cohorts how Cornelian cherries are not really cherries but they just came into bloom and they are not really super hardy in Minnesota but there is one doing reasonably well, last time I checked, outside of Coffey Hall that’s been there for decades. Here in p-town one can see a pretty grouping of them around the Vietnam memorial in Hoyt arboretum. And there’s a fine one at Edgefield! And they are high in vitamins!

Just make up your mind and keep the line moving, yo.

I’d been having childhood memories of Bridgeman’s lately, the old-fashioned ice cream parlor my family would go to to celebrate a piano recital or graduation. So it felt satisfying to take my dad and his wife out for ice cream after they patiently attended my group presentation on the final day of Permaculture design course, and the mandatory talent show afterwards. YEA!!
