Irresistible leaves

DAY 193 (15 OCTOBER) – Common dogwood (Cornus sanguinea) (Farnham)

I seem to be irresistibly drawn to dogwood this week… I had no idea when I took this picture of gorgeous leaves on a medium-sized tree that they were related to yesterday’s plant.

Wikipedia has come up with a strange fact for this one: “The prehistoric archer known as Otzi the Iceman, discovered in 1991 on the border between Italy and Austria, was carrying arrow shafts made from dogwood.” Hmm, wonder what would happen on the (perhaps) soon-to-be new Irish border?
