Dogwood time............


.........and here are a few looks at our many dogwood trees in the yard and around the farm. The blooms are not as many, nor as large as usual, but considering their stress from the ongoing drought in this area, I'm surprised they're blooming at all this spring............and so very thankful and blessed to see them again!!! Our dogwoods grow wild in the woodlands and we have to make an effort next fall to try and transplant small ones to our yard and driveway to replace those lost from age and drought. So far we haven't been able to get a pink one to live here, but there's always next year!

I'm SO glad you shared those photos. I miss them so much. I was just thinking the other day about a very chic store in Mpls that sold dogwood blossoms, dried and pressed, by the oz. Very expensive, but oh, how I'd love to have a scoop of those blossoms now!
