While growing up, I was told about the dogwood tree, and how it was the wood the Jesus' cross was made out of (not true). As the story went, the dogwood tree would blossom for Easter with white flowers that had red centers... like the wounds on Christ's hands and feet. Of course, being in Texas with our early springs, the dogwood trees always blossomed closer to Ash Wednesday than to Easter.
But this year, we had an early Easter, and the dogwood in our backyard bloomed. I thought I'd share it with you.
