dogwood days

The dogwood tree says spring in North Carolina.  And Easter.  Legend has it that the cross Christ died upon was made of wood from a dogwood tree.  The flowers are symbolic, with 'nail holes' at the end of each petal and a 'cross of thorns' at the center.  Seasons change and nature reminds us that endings are really new beginnings.
