My pink dogwood blooms so beautifully each spring. This tree has been in the family for about 35 years. I almost lost it twice. One summer a drunk car thief, while fleeing the police, jumped the curb in a stolen truck and clipped it. And during the huge snowstorm of 2010 the weight of the snow brought some of it’s branches down. it bounced back though. Through it all my little tree continues to bloom, year after year.
