Pink dogwood 2021

 

What with the disease that's killing the dogwoods, I was glad about half of this tree still bloomed this year....same tree that's been in the header for about a month!


Today's quote:

There is within each of us a modulation, an inner exaltation, which lifts us above the buffetings with which events assail us. Likewise, it lifts us above dependence upon the gifts of events for our joy.

ALBERT SCHWEITZER

  1. My pink dogwood in front of my suburban house is doing fine, but it's the only one in the neighborhood, so maybe the disease won't be transmitted for a while.

    1. I hadn't seen a pink one before moving to North Carolina...just the wild white ones in the woods all over the south.

  4. It, like us, survives for another day or year or whatever.

    I don't know where Tom lives but it is cold and snowing here too.

    1. Oh dear, you folks all across the north-east, and as far south as St. Louis. We shall have a freeze tonight, but no snow at lease.

  8. We have two pink dogwoods. We planted four of them about eight years ago, but two died.
