Golden Brodie retrieves for you the Virginia State Flower and Tree

I’m a content and people pleasing golden…I try anyway…and today I am bringing you a present…a virtual flower and tree that are near and dear to my Virginia born heart…the Dogwood.  The Dogwood is not only a treasured beauty but also the State tree and State flower for the Commonwealth of Virginia.  Some say that at one time the Dogwood bark was also used as a mange treatment for dogs.  A tree that keeps giving golden!

Golden Retriever Brodie shares an illuminating story about loyalty to The White House.

The treat is all mine to enjoy the flowers of the Dogwood in the spring and then their colorful foliage change in the fall.   Love me some Dogwood.
