Life goes on
I'm back from my blog break today after a rough couple of weeks for my family. We lost two wonderful people who were dear to us, but as my post title says, life goes on and we are reminded to take nothing for granted and appreciate everyone and everything we cherish in our lives. I took a picture of this tiny dogwood tree a few weeks ago when I was out having fun with my grandkids at a local park. The tree might be small, but it was showing off some pretty blossoms on a beautiful spring day and I was able to zoom in and get a nice closeup of the flowers. Aren't they lovely?

Beautiful! I have never seen a dogwood tree In real life! I'd like love to though! I'm sorry for your loss.
A lovely little tree. Sorry about the losses in your family. But life does go on and you will keep them alive in your memories. :)
Lindas flores são as maravilhas da Primavera.
Um abraço e bom fim de semana.
Wonderful pictures !
Glad to see you back Lois, sorry to hear about the loss in the family of two persons, an accident I presume? Yes life goes on, but it will be difficult at the moment. Wish you all the best.
Good morning, I am sorry for your loss. I agree we must take nothing for granted and appreciate all our loved ones. Pretty shots of the dogwood tree and blooms.Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!
This wonderful and beautiful little tree is a fragrant testimony as to how new life continues to prosper even as we lose those near and dear to us. You are so right about the "Now." That's all we have. That's all we ever have. It's very nice to have you back!
Beautiful little tree and very nice blossoms !
Welcome back, Lois.
I'm very sorry about the losses in your family.
Yes they are lovely and I hope these little things bring you solace...
Lois, I am so very sorry for your losses. Your title is right, and we all know that, but it is still hard each time. Nature helps heal -- and I know that valiant little dogwood brings you a smile and joy!
We've got some dogwoods blooming here--just. The dogwood is an especially appropriate blossom for those who have experienced loss.
Im so so sorry for you losses Lois. It can feel so strange the way life just keeps on ticking along after something so major happens... I always find getting out in nature quite comforting, these are lovely photos.
So sorry, Lois. The dogwood certainly is a beautiful reminder of hope for the future.
So sorry to hear of your loss, Lois! I hope things get better soon for you. Grab the good times while we can!
Wow wonderful colors and flowers on the tree. I love the dogwoods. Hope you are feeling better now.
It's true Lois, life goes on but it can feel very strange for a while. I'm very happy to see you back xx
Hi Lois, I am so very sorry for your loss and I hope the good memories you have spent in their company will bring you peace. I send my love and deepest condolences.
I also thank you for sharing these very beautiful dogwoods. They really do bring sunshine into the day.
My condolences, Lois. May you be well and remember the good times.
