Legends tie the Dogwood tree to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The reddish tinge on the flower is said to represent the blood of Christ.

While I cannot attest to the validity of the legend, the story is one I remember this time of year – every year. So, in honor of Easter Sunday and Jesus, I give you the flower of the Dogwood.

Happy Easter. Today, may you make time to rest and give thanks, regardless of your faith or lack thereof.

    1. Leah, I admire your work greatly, and I am flattered you liked this photo. Glad I could remind you of the beautiful Georgia Dogwoods. I look forward to them every year.

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
