What’s in bloom

Today at the Garden, I noticed that the Cornus kousa across the street from the Watson building is in bloom!

What was more strange was that the kousa at the corner of the building is beginning to turn – and is laden with fruit!

Elsewhere on the property, I noticed that the Cornus florida is also full of berries – though not nearly as delicious as those of the kousa!

I wonder if this last-ditch attempt to produce fruit has any indication of a hard winter to come… and how long it’s going to take the birds and squirrels to eat everything?
