Happy Arbor Day, Missouri!

Missouri celebrates its Arbor Day the first Friday of April, so Happy Arbor Day Missouri!

Missouri, which is home to four silo trees, has had a lot more consistency with its Arboreal Emblem than Kentucky. In 1955, Missouri selected the Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida) and has stuck with it ever since.

That is a commitment to a tree despite its sketchy past and notorious cohorts. Legend has the dogwood implicated in a murder. : )

    I absolutely LOVE dogwoods… They are beautiful and smell wonderful! They are blooming here in Georgia and the air is wonderful to run through on my afternoon jog.

    Have I mentioned lately how much I love your posts?

    @Thomas – I believe you mentioned it on Facebook. But I don’t tire of hearing it. 🙂
