Dogwood I've never seen
I think it's cool because I've never seen it and because there is a total certainty in the pointy little 5-year-old voice which chimes up and says "That's a dogwood blossom!" even though my grown-up, prairie native adult mind says "I've never seen that, and MY dogwood does not look like that!"
That's because my mom had a tablecloth that had Cornus florida blossoms with accents of pink. I can't remember what it covered. I remember admiring it is all. Obviously I really, really admired it.
Share your love of plants with your kids like my mom did. No kid is too young. Really.
