Dogwood Blossoms

Dogwood blossoms, April 9, 2010, West-Central Arkansas

Unfortunately, our lovely dogwood tree close to the house sickened and died after blooming in 2015.  We suspected that it had been weakened during the drought of 2012 and, subsequently, fell victim to some type of dogwood disease.

    Hi Mike – wonderful … for some reason the name ‘dogwood’ gives me a warm feeling – I can see banks of them … so sorry yours has died. Lovely photo – cheers Hilary

      Hilary – Thanks. Dogwoods in bloom in the forest understory can be very beautiful and indicates that Spring is here — or just around the corner. We’ll start seeing them in another two or three months, depending on how long the cold lasts.
