Part of a series of dryads (tree spirits). This dryad is the spirit of the tree that once stood there. As an important and necessary part of the Life Cycle, she wants our respect, not our tears. Her purpose survives beyond death, providing nourishment for future life as her roots decay in the Earth. With a simple dogwood flower on her dress, she promises that Spring will indeed return ~ and so will she.
