Cornus Florida, our native dogwood.
No, it doesn’t look like this in Connecticut yet. This image is from last May. But this is the dogwood that I am talking about. It is dripping sap puddles onto our driveway.
I have recalled seeing such a thing in the past, but not quite as pronounced as this year. Perhaps that’s because–for a change–it has been very dry so the puddles have a chance to get large before rain or snow wash them away. This is a tiny, fresh puddle.
This is the sort of thing that I am talking about. These dark spots are the dried sap puddles.
And here’s the actual sap dripping from the tree. It’s rather odd.
I am used to maples making a mess. But not my dogwood!
