Signs of Spring

This week has produced a myriad of blooms including a few that are early!  We are spotting Suacer Magnolias, Lady Banks Roses, Redbuds, Azaleas and Dogwoods! Yes, you read that right, Dogwoods are already starting to bloom in Palestine, Texas!  Some Luck!

While the majority of the Dogwoods are still waiting for the right moment, there are a few early risers being spotted around town.   These blooms mostly have been found in areas around town that are under a large canpoy of trees, where Dogwoods thrive.  

The Dogwood traditionally blooms in Palestine, Texas in late March and into early April, but this year, we may be in for an early treat!  

On Monday, Palestine welcomed some really strong rains, which have forced Davey Dogwood Park to be closed this week while fallen trees and debris are removed from the roadways, but we will update you on the blooms in the park as soon as access is granted!
