Dogwood Bloom & Easter…

Dogwood Bloom – Charleston, SC

Dogwood blooms are so interesting – so pretty in the Spring! Read this interesting blip below regarding their blooms!

Wishing you all a beautiful day – Easter truly is a day of celebration!

I found this interesting, from the NCpedia.org website (it’s pretty amazing when you look at the bloom after you’ve read this):

Several legends surrounding the dogwood are still repeated in North Carolina. One popular story holds that 2,000 years ago the flowering dogwood tree stood straight, proud, and tall. Because the tree had such strong wood, the Roman soldiers under Pontius Pilate chose to make the cross of Jesus Christ out of dogwood trunks. The dogwood tree was horrified but had no choice. In order never to serve as a cross again, the dogwood became a slender, twisted tree. In addition, to help people remember Jesus’ sacrifice, the dogwood flowers bloom in the spring in the shape of a cross with nail holes at the ends.
