More Backyard Blooms

When Mike was about 11 or 12 years old, his mother planted a young dogwood tree in their front yard. A few times since we’ve been back in the Memphis area, we’ve driven by the house where he grew up and have admired the mature tree, full of spring blooms, now taller than the house.

As I’ve planted trees in our back yard over the past year, it was clear that Mike needed a new dogwood. So a month ago, we planted a dogwood sapling near the back of the house. And here he is -- -- a boy and his tree.
