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.

Beautiful! I miss Dogwoods. They lined the street I lived on in Georgia and this time of year was a beautiful sight. Thanks for sharing this.
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.
Especially against the soft / colorful background!
Very, very nicely done, Ms. D!
Thank you, SIG. The macro setting did not fail me, nor did the azaleas in the background.
Thank you. The macro setting worked. Yay!!
I love macro shots. They are so crisp in detailed. : )
