My Mom grew up in the Ozark Mountains in Northern Arkansas where the Dogwood grows wild in the mountain woods. The Dogwood was always one of her favorites blooms and she tried several times unsuccessfully to transplant one from the mountains to the flat land Mississippi River Delta where I grew up.
When my Mom passed away we had the Dogwood bloom engraved on her head stone. So I guess you can say the Dogwood bloom is also very special to me.*
Rest in Peace Mom!
