The dogwood trees are starting to pop here. I love the white blooms but the the pink blossom is my favorite.
The delicate beauty of this little tree requires a some thought and care if it’s introduction to a property is to be a success. It is not ideal for all sites and climate conditions and it is vulnerable to a range of diseases and insects. The flowering dogwood doesn’t respond well to rough handling and should be placed in a spot that is safe and can be admired. We’ve got a woodpecker that is tapping and possibly harming the tree.
Inspired by the dogwood blossom we picked that flower to recreate both a cremation urn and jewelry that reflects the spirit of spring, renewal and rebirth to create a personal memorial.
