I am not new to gardening but am new to this group.

If you are in the southern hemisphere then winter is fast approaching 
and the color change is quite appropriate :}  If not, then I have 
nothing to offer except the knowledge that I came here looking for 
sympathy because my 20 year old dogwood recently succumbed to what 
appears in the stump to be some sort of fungus/rot :{

It was in a magnificent location and was thriving during its first 18 
years and then had the top half's leaves come out about half normal 
size.  Perhaps a mimosa would be happier in this location and possibly 
not susceptible to this dogwood infection.
