Excerpt from: Floriography

The gentle and whimsical blooms of the dogwood tree look delicate, but the wood of its trunk is strong and durable. Victorian lovers used this flower to indicate that their love could endure any trial.

  1. I fell in love with the Dogwood when the tree flowered outside my loungeroom window for the first time since moving here five years ago. Stunning. Looks like a gorgeous book. I remember seeing my dear old great Aunt’s water colours of so many flowers and pressing them between the pages of books.
