Bloom Where You Are Planted Pink Flowering Dogwood
When Your Back Is Against The Wall - Bloom Where You Are Planted. I noticed this gorgeous pink flowering dogwood tree blooming at the edge of a parking lot along Baker Street in McMinnville, Oregon the last week of April 2018. Planted right next to a stark concrete building wall, its colorful blooms provided an interesting contrast and lesson in making the most of your situation. Up close, the tree appeared to be almost one dimensional as it spread out its branches. I imagine the hot summer sun scorches the leaves against the sizzling concrete wall, but once a year, it gets to show off with a dazzling display. Never give up. Your time will come. Be ready for it.
