09.10.07 "DAGWOOD"

The berries on the dogwood tree, Cornus florida, have turned a beautiful red and will add color to the forest long into the winter. Wikipedia reports that this tree is called "dogwood" as a corruption of "dagwood" or "daggerwood." Dogwood has a good hard wood which was once used to make daggers as well as all types of wooden tools and handles.
