The Legend of the Dogwood Poem   12 comments


My  sister posted about the Legend of the Dogwood today and since I recently discovered that I had two Dogwood trees in my backyard, I decided to share this poem.  I never knew that these two trees were Dogwoods.  It gives me a new appreciation for this beautiful tree.  Even though it is just a legend,  I appreciate the reminder of my Savior’s sacrifice for me whenever I see these trees!

Blessings on you as we anticipate Resurrection Sunday!

  2. Oh, I love dogwood trees too! (I’d heard that legend as a small child, but it was nice to hear it again)

    It’s always an AWESOME thing to be reminded of what JESUS did for us. THANKS for sharing! =-)


  3. I had not heard this before I read Ellen’s and your posts. It is a beautiful thought. My dogwood tree is pink.

    • I have found no biblical references to the dogwood. I painted a watercoler of a branch and would like to write something meaningful on it. Any ideas? Please go directly to my email. I probably will not visit here, I don’t have time.

      Have a great Easter.
