The dogwood tree brings back the Spring in my childhood memories. I found this tree in my parent's front yard in NC, while we were visiting family for Spring Break. I have long associated dogwoods with Easter. The four petals represent the cross, the marks on the petals, represent the nails into Christ's body. It's a wonderful reminder of the true meaning of Easter, and a gorgeous floral Spring tree.


This is a gorgeous old Southern home in my parents town. I thought the pink dogwood trees framed the home so beautifully!

It looks like such a beautiful place Abby. I love dogwoods. I used to have a pink one in my backyard, but it got some sort of disease and I had to have it removed :(
