Life's Blessings - Dogwood Trees

Our dogwood has gotten its fall berries. I love their shape and colors. They almost look like something out of a science fiction movie. I watched the other day as my resident chipmunk set out to feast on the berries that had fallen to the ground. He was followed by the birds who also seem to enjoy the feast. Nothing is wasted. In a few short weeks all evidence will have disappeared.

Of course next spring the tree will be in full bloom and once more we'll be able to sit and watch it in all its glory.

Ooh, those berries are very pretty! I never looked at dogwood berries before. I guess I only notice the trees in spring when they are in flower.

The Dogwood was my Mothers favorite tree. I think of her every time I see one.
