In our part of town, it looks like someone came through the neighborhood planting Dogwood trees Johnny Appleseed-style. The yards are full of them — white and pink — some houses have two or even three trees. And, wow, they are beautiful.
The other day we were on a walk and I was telling David about them.
Me: David, do you see those trees? Those are Dogwood trees. Aren’t they pretty?
Me: David, did you know those are the official tree for Virginia?
David: Yeeeeah. […thinking…] Mary Virginia, that’s your tree. Mommy, where’s my tree?
