January 17 - The Flowering Dogwood Tree - Cornus florida

The Flowering Dogwood Tree
This Flowering Dogwood lives at the Asheville Botanical Gardens.

You can always recognize the beautiful dogwood tree by it's very distictive bark. The bark is broken up into little interesting shaped pieces. You can also identify this tree by it's buds that are all upright and remind me of little birthday candles all over the tree. Sunsets and dogwoods can paint such beautiful scenes.
