Red Osier Waiting - Waiting for Spring
Red osier, aka red dogwood, or red osier dogwood, is a plant that is native to northern and western North America. Southeast Michigan, where I live, is near the southeastern border of its range. Its scientific or binomial name is Cornus sericea.
As you can see, the dark red twigs provide welcome color to a winter landscape.

Thunderstorms late yesterday afternoon and evening forced me to shut down my computer, so I wasn't able to comment. I'll try to catch up later today, though storms are still in the area.
