Dogwood Days Are Here Again

Wildflowers are blanketing the fields in many places, but if you’re in East Texas, don’t forget to look up in the trees, as well.

In Palestine, dogwood blossoms put on their best show during the Dogwood Trails Celebration, which features a lively roster of activities spread across the last two weekends of March and the first weekend in April. 

Dogwoods2Of course, no visit during dogwood season would be complete without a trek through the trees to see the delicate white or pink flowers for yourself. Davey Dogwood Park has preserved 200 acres of dogwood country since 1941, offering five miles of roads and hiking trails with scenic views. Tips on flowering times and other places to see dogwoods in the area can be found at Dogwood Bloom Watch at http://dogwoodbloomwatch. blogspot.com--the word this year is that the trees are blooming slowly but steadily, so there's still time to plan a trip even after the official festival wraps up this weekend. 

If you're headed out this weekend, more information on the Dogwood Trails Celebration can be found at www.texasdogwoodtrails.com or 903/729-6066, or by contacting the Palestine Visitor Center at www.visitpalestine.com or 903/723-3014.
