~ Ms. Dogwood ~

Gemma inspired this post , I was reading her blog about trees. Thought I would share our favorite tree , this Dogwood grows very close to the house. We've discussed cutting it down , but our hearts won't let us. It's close to the house and we're afraid the roots could
cause damage , hopefully it won't get much larger .We moved here in "85" , my youngest daughter was 2 then , she loved swinging from that lower limb. Now Curious J enjoys swinging from that limb , a couple of weeks ago he broke one of small limbs. He played with that limb for at least an hour , and was telling us he wanted to be a TREE.
Friday evening I was walking Little Missy around the yard and I introduced her to Ms. Dogwood , although she's just 6 months old , she'll be swinging on that tree before we know it. I can see her and Sweet Baby J both hanging from that limb , such a sweet vision especially in the Spring when all the violets are blooming underneath it.

So Blessed are we to have this Special Tree ~ Ms. Dogwood

~ Hope you're Blessed with a Special Tree ~

Joyceann: I understand about your tree! We all have favorite trees with many wonderful memories and I feel that trees talk to me ...YES I could be walking along and suddenly "the tree talks..whispers" > just have to stop look at it and take photos of the tree..one I always remember on this small island all alone...I posted that tree last year..anyway..I'm babbling so I'd better stop now.
a tree hugger NG xo

I really liked the clover rice
and the tea!

Have you used the white clover
at all? There seems to be more
of that blooming right now.

I pick some clover everday on my walk. Life a handfull or less.
Some of the plants aren't fully
in bloom yet.

Have you dried the dandilion root
to use as coffee?

God Bless You and Yours!!!
