The Dogwood Trees are blooming which is a signal to plant seeds and little plants. Most people around here do not plant crops until the bloom of the dogwoods is finished. Sometimes there is a 'Dogwood Winter' where a late cold front freezes the blooms of the dogwoods. Not this year, we are in the clear in S. Texas. We did have a late spring cold snap, but it caught the redbuds and tulip magnolias a couple of weeks ago.Tonight, I have shared info from Wikipedia on the Dogwood Trees. If you have a shady spot in your yard, I suggest this tree for you. You will fall in love! Enjoy!
