Springtime in Franklin – My Pink Dogwood

Pink Dogwood

Pink Dogwood in my front yard

We were having a lovely lunch on the porch this afternoon when a man pulled up to our front house and asked if he could take a picture of our pink dogwood tree. He had never seen one (he had some sort of a foreign accent) and I thought it was a great idea! For my friends in the cold north, here’s a little sunshine and springtime to send your way!

Thanks! I love taking pictures of flowers (my family makes fun of me!) but I thought this dogwood was especially beautiful! Happy Spring!

Oh, what a beautiful picture… it gives me hope that spring will soon come to the north as well! Joann assures me the orchard is in bloom in VanZandt so we will enjoy that bit of spring before we head home on May 1st.

Glad you liked it! Spring is really beautiful in TN. You need to come visit sometime!

What an amazing photo. I must have a cutting for my kitchen window … hint, hint.

Also, I LOVE the new look for your blog. Not sure how new it really is, but it’s my first time to see it. Wow. Way to go!

Love you,

Thanks, Gail! The dogwood is the state flower of Virginia (I know this from 4th grade history) and I think it is illegal to cut them in VA. However, since we live in TN you are more than welcome to a branch! :-) Love back! K
