Pink Dogwood


I remember a warm spring afternoon, many years ago, when our elderly neighbor sat Mac on a bench beneath the maple tree in her backyard and held a dogwood blossom in her hand. She shared the legend of the dogwood with him, and I listened intently as I'd never heard it before. Since that day, I've often been amazed that they bloom each year, just in time for Resurrection Sunday.

I don't know the legend!! When I was a child, we had a pink dogwood in our backyard. My siblings and I climbed it so much (cringe) that it eventually got weak and sick and my dad had to cut it down.
That's a beautiful photo - I wish I still had a dogwood in my back yard. . .
