Dogwood Days Full Bloom

A Dogwood tree will never grow on your lot I was told when we built our new  home a couple of years ago. So, being a little bit contrarian, I rescued a Cherokee Red Dogwood from Lowes Garden Center for $7 after gardening season. You do not plant Dogwoods in the fall and expect them to survive the winter, especially in a high wind zone. But I did. It was pretty scruffy looking last year but this year the nurturing is blooming dividends.

From earlier this spring.

 

Planted by the Waters

Sunday Scene

Thus says the Lord:

“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
And makes flesh his strength,
Whose heart departs from the Lord.
For he shall be like a shrub in the desert,
And shall not see when good comes,
But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness,
In a salt land which is not inhabited.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.

Jeremiah 17:5-8 (NKJV)

Enjoyed some time away this week. No schedule, no TV, no internet, no cares, little phone service…just down time.
