The Legend of the Dogwood Tree

Last Friday I went to the library to return and pick up items. Yes, I browsed as usual.

Anyway, on the way there, I admired the dogwood trees in the yards, already in pink and white bloom. I recalled the legend of the dogwood, which I had learned from an early age. My assistant accompanied me, and I told it to her, unsure if I was even telling it properly. She said I did a good job.

Later on, I looked up the story online. Here it is. I also like the song by country singer Wilma Lee Cooper.

Just because I was curious, I looked up some information on how to care for dog wood trees.
