After a post a week or so ago about the Dogwoods and Strawberries in bloom, I now want to show an example of the story of the Dogwood. I am unsure of where I heard the story at first, maybe in church growing up. These pictures are of the recent blooms and exhibit the blood stains of Christ. A more in depth telling of the story: Legend of the Dogwood Tree.
Little and beautiful blooms among a barren forest.
The crimson symbols of Christ's blood; sad, yet beautiful.
The cross shape is more visible in the mature bloom in the foreground. The bloom in the background will gradually change its shape into a more cross like shape in a few days.
