we pondered long and hard when we moved into our house last summer what the lone little tree was in the front yard. and to my surprise last week i realised. a pink dogwood!
i do not believe i have ever seen one with this deep pink of a hue.
this is what i am enjoying most about being back in arkansas. the nature…. the land. its been harder than i expected moving back here. for years i talked and dreamed of coming back to arkansas. so much so that those in texas asked “why?”
true there were friends and family here but i truly believe i had to come back for this. to actually see seasons change. for leaves to turn orange and red and the hills to be alive with colors. for the chance of snow…. well at least a better chance than south texas ( even though i barley survived the temps this winter).
so even though things aren’t what i had built up in those 10 years of being away. even though i have come to really really miss alot of things in san antonio. even through the troubles with jobs and family crises, i am becoming more at home at home.
