Thursday Tree Love: Blooming Dogwoods


The dogwoods are blooming!

I took the top three photos Tuesday in our current neighborhood. The next one is a dogwood standing in front of a pine tree taken a few years ago. They look like friends, don’t they? I bet their roots intertwine and they hold on to each other during storms.

Love Letters to Tress:

The city of Melbourne, Australia gave email addresses to trees in case citizens wanted to notify the city about problems that needed to be addressed. But people also wrote love letters and greetings directly to the trees. You can read some of those letters in this article:Β  When You Give a Tree and Email Address


#ThursdayTreelove is a photo feature hosted by Parul Thakur atΒ on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. For more information, visit

  1. Our dogwoods are starting to bloom. I was so worried because they were heavily damaged during our heavy wet snowstorm. And I love The Atlantic article SO much! Best thing I have read all day. Thanks for making my day a little brighter!

  2. OH wow these are beautiful I didn’t realize dogwoods had yellow flowers so beautiful! πŸ™‚

  3. What a beauty, JoAnna! I love the idea of giving the trees in our neighborhood an email address.

  4. Very pretty – I love yellow flowers against a blue sky!

  5. These are so lovely!! We dont have Dogwoods in my part of the world so thoroughly enjoying these spectacular blooms! I am told they have wonderful Fall foliage as well. Is that true?

    • I forgot about that, but the leaves have interesting lines and turn red/brown in the fall. Also, they have red berries in the fall though not edible. I’m glad you enjoyed the flowers!

  6. Those pictures are so pretty, JoAnna. Our won’t be blooming for a while yet, so it’s good to see yours.

  7. Beautiful! That bright blue sky makes them even more beautiful in contrast. Great share!

  8. Wow! Love those pictures and so beautiful against the clear sky and those colors. And love letters to trees. What a lovely idea that was. Thanks for sharing and joining with the beautiful entry JoAnna. So glad you chose to post!

  10. Who would ever have thought of emailing love letters to trees? I wouldn’t have. I love your dogwoods (we won’t have ours in New York State for another month or more) and your deep blue sky.

  11. Yay! Dogwoods. I have a bunch to share too. I just can’t decide when!

  12. And the letters to trees? AWESOME!
