Arguably one of the prettiest times of the year in southeast Oklahoma, spring brings that wonderful reprieve from winter; warmer weather lets us again enjoy the outdoors without so many layers, and the region is awash in the beauty that comes with springtime blooming. And dogwood trees are an area favorite when it comes to spring blooms. Since the late 1730s, dogwood trees have been used as ornamental additions to landscaping here in the North America. Some credit Thomas Jefferson for the tree's increasing popularity in the late 1700s, as he did his best to spread these trees through his [...]
