Have you ever bought something from the store that was in a big box and you opened it up to discover the item inside was tiny? That is kind of what dogwood flowers are like. They have big white petals that attract you but when you look closer you think, “hey, those aren’t petals at all, they’re modified leaves called bracts.” Those tiny little yellow things are the flowers. You don’t know weather to feel fooled or impressed. If dogwoods could talk they would say, “Ha, ha…I got ya!”
I’m not sure I can change dogwoods but
I would sure like to see smaller packaging on our store shelves.
