My favorite tree flower would have to be the dogwood. There’s a little dogwood tree in my grandmother’s yard, planted after my grandfather died. The stone beneath it with a painted on remembrance that is all but gone commemorates his life. As I walk to the tree, I am met by the maple that my grandfather and I planted a few years before his death. It is now so tall and strong that I can barely shake it anymore. Much like the memories I have of my grandfather.
This time of Holy Week reminds me of the coming of Easter. The line of feast and fasting days has not yet begun, but I can look at the blooms of the dogwood and anticipate the coming celebration of the Resurrection.
