The dogwood tree in the yard was a complete surprise. Years ago I tried several times to grow dogwood trees, one pink and the other white. Both trees died within the year and I never tried again. When you stand beneath a dogwood and look up you can see layers of branches with the blood-tipped blossoms clinging tightly.
One more before I leave you...with all the serious business of living it's grand to have a reasons to smile so I must share this silly photo with you
