The Dogwood Won’t Die.

This particular dogwood tree is pretty old as dogwoods go, but it refuses to die. In recent years, it has shed rotten limbs in spring and summer thunderstorms, autumn hurricanes, winter nor’easters, and bled orange mucous with some sort of fungal infection for weeks when it was trimmed. It has not one, but multiple holes in its heart, and yet it blooms in spring and gathers with the neighboring oak trees as if nothing’s wrong. It’s an amazing, tenacious, living thing, this old dogwood tree…
