Day 4 of the A-Z activity of “What Makes Me Happy.”
Little did I realize when I chose Dogwood for my D word what I would learn about this beautiful tree (now a large bush)!
Dogwood and Daddy are in the same pocket of my heart. This picture of my daddy was taken under the dogwood tree in my brother-in-law’s back yard in central California about two and a half decades ago. I treasure it because it captures my father’s sweet disposition and kindness so perfectly. That tree is not gnarled and twisted as the Legend of the Dogwood tree suggests. But the blossoms are as the legend describes in this poem I found on the Internet this morning:
I didn’t know this legend until now. How did I miss it all these years? Did you know it?
What’s the D word that makes YOU happy?
