Venus against a blue sky

This is our entry in Lost in Translations’s Thursday’s Special: Vernal.

This Spring we planted a Venus dogwood tree to replace our green ash tree that succumbed to the emerald ash borer over the past year.  The Venus dogwood is known for its large creamy white bracts in the Spring, red fruit in the Fall, and attractive leaves in the Summer and Fall.  This tree should be healthy, drought-tolerant, and disease-resistant. We look forward to enjoying its beauty for many years.
