Palm Sunday Dogwood

A little license here.  There are no Palm Trees on the farm but hundreds of wild Dogwoods.  It seems to be an appropriate substitute to mark Palm Sunday, the Christian feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter.   After all, in many areas of the world where Palms are not available,  branches of yew, willow, or boxwood are substituted,  giving the name Yew Sunday or in some places, Branch Sunday.   In many churches, the leaves or branches of the available trees are distributed to worshippers.  Whether Palm, Yew or even Dogwood, it commemorates Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.  See you next time on most of this same site.
