If there’s a hero of the springtime blooming season to be found in the woodlands of this part of the world, it has to be the Dogwood.

They are one of the earliest joyous signs of a new growing season about to begin. And despite their relatively diminutive size when compared to the alpha dogs of the woodlands, they frequently steal the show in early spring.
  ~ They can turn into a sea of white pointillism raining down in the forest.
  ~ They can take on the persona of a winged creature soaring through the scene.
  ~ They can mimic a waterfall of flowering joy cascading down from the canopy...a flowerfall, if you will.
  ~ The tiered nature of their branching can remind one of a child’s twirl-a-whirl.
  ~ Or the sparseness of flowering can lend a sense of abstract minimalism in an otherwise sea of ‘busy’.
