Dogwood

We have several dogwood trees just behind our house, and many grow wild in the woods beyond. One little tree was planted by my husband at least 20 years ago, seems to have barely grown and has rarely bloomed. But it has three blooms on it now…

    We didn’t have dogwoods in the Rockies. When I moved to Washington, and then when we bought a house in Maryland, we had wonderful displays of dogwoods, explosions of white blossoms like fireworks in the understory of the forests around out home, and on the road between DC and Baltimore (which we took often, as Orioles fans).

    Dogwoods are common to east Texas, but not Dallas County.

    Except, there is one spot in Dallas County where a rare, adapted form of dogwoods blossom every April. Fortunately, it’s near us.

    1. I never thought about dogwoods not being everywhere! LOL We tend to take white dogwoods for granted here, although the pinks are seen less often. I love your two blog posts. How wonderful to hike in and see the one spot where dogwoods bloom each year!

    (My last comment went to moderation — probably because there are two links in it. Hope you’ll approve.)

    1. Well, my tree has 3 blooms, and that’s all. I have two other dogwood trees directly behind my house, and they have no blooms. LOL
