Dogwoods: A Flower of My Own

Sometime last year, I had a friend tell me that if I were a flower, I’d be a dogwood. I didn’t exactly know what to make of it, but my friend expressed that the dogwood was simple, elegant, and not romanticized. She said it was a “down to earth flower.”

So I guess I’ll take that as a compliment.
