The dogwood trees (Cornus florida) have been gorgeous this Spring! I have a fondness for white flowers! Although, technically speaking, on the dogwood tree, the flowers are really on the part in the middle, which is like a crown of thorns. (The dogwood always blooms close to Easter, and in fact, there is a legend of the dogwood tree associated with Easter, I am sure you know it.)
The white flowers are in abundance on the local mountains (monadnocks) and they are beautiful! They are called sandwort, but before I knew the name of them, I called them "joyflowers" and you will forgive me if I still think of them with that name.
Of course, I have to show you this photo (yes, you have seen it before!) It is in Eastbourne in England, along the seafront and that is me with Christopher and we are posing with the flower "snow in summer". I love it! Most people there just call it a "ground cover" but you know I am crazy about it!
Speaking of white flowers, it should make you think of weddings. I have "Love Stinks" from the film "The Wedding Singer". I hope you know the scene from the movie! The character was jilted at the altar and you can imagine since he is a wedding singer, it would be hard for him to sing happy love songs for a wedding couple!
Thanks to all who left comments on my last post. It is difficult for me to write of such things and I didn't have time to think properly, so I hope you will forgive my lack of response to such insightful comments.
Once again, let me apologize for my lack of time in the wonderful world of blogging. I have had a few problems with my hand and wrist on my right hand, and doggone it, then...the LEFT hand went the same way! Too much typing at work, I guess, makes it hard when you want to type on the computer in the evenings!
Hope you are all doing well, my friends. And remember, you may have folks scoff at little white flowers, but think of me and remember how much I love them!
