Moms and kids enjoyed the sunshine last week outside the dogwood-decked Mike’s Ice Cream. Lewie Taylor hands his mother, Libby, a tiara he borrowed from Eloise Vernhes, who watches in the background with her sister, Raine. Lewie’s brother, Miles, runs up at left. Nearby, but out of the photo, were Vernhes and her infant son, Remy. These dogwood blossoms have mostly transformed to leaves in the past week, but vibrant pink and white dogwoods, along with sturdy lilacs and newly-bloomed rhododendrons form a community-wide corsage to help celebrate Mother’s Day.
