dogMy mother, who passed away three years ago last month, loved dogwood trees. In the yard of the house I grew up in we had a big dogwood that bloomed every May usually on or between Mothers’ Day and my mom’s birthday, May 19. When my parents moved to the old New Hampshire homestead she planted a new dogwood that grew into a fine tree but never bloomed in the 25 years they lived there. When my mom died, which was, ironically, between Mothers’ Day and May 19th – that tree finally bloomed. True story.

Sadly, the old New Hampshire manse has been sold and that tree has been removed. However, the fine folks at Seeds of Life have the greatest way to bring the memory of my mother forward with their Pink Dogwood Memorial Gift Tree.
