This is just pure fun!! I had been reading some of the myths and realities associated with the dogwood tree - it was used to make the cross for Jesus' crucifixion; the flowers have marks at the end of each petal - the nail on the cross. Some might be true, some sound plausible and some well...You can't believe everything you read!!
One of my favorite places in our yard is the dogwood tree out back that creates a space with my picnic table - my grounding spot. I sit leaning against the tree, put my bare feet on the ground and now the Lemon balm is coming back to life. When I talk about being still - and that I do - this is the place for me!! I wanted to see what I could see in the flowers. Our tree is little and it wasn't very open in bloom, but it gave me some insights. Then, by accident - ok there are no accidents, only synchronicities, I hit some button and whammo - saturation. Now this is an image to contemplate!! Be still, gaze into the picture and see what messages you might get.
For those of you who are more traditional,
here is the flower as it is growing on the tree.
