Dogwood 2012

 Every year I attempt to find a new way to present this beautiful tree. 
I mean dogwood blossoms are pretty much the same year to year.

This morning I stepped out on the front stoop to call the dogs inside.
I looked to my left and there she stood.
Her pinks all gorgeous in the sunlight and against the light green of the new 
leaves of the tree behind her.

I think the shape of the branches is pretty.
You've seen them before in my note card of Oliver.
But never from this angle.
I'm very thankful for this lovely tree.
It is so close to our house that at some point it may need to be replaced...
but not yet.

Just breathtaking, Becky. Ours are long gone - you're so lucky to have such a large dogwood tree, too! They never get old or boring to me - Isn't spring wonderful!

PInk dogwoods are my favorite blooming tree. We have lots of the white ones and I like those as well. They are all in bloom right now. Love seeing all the wild ones.

That is a pretty tree, we don't have any of those, but there's some close by in the neighbor's yard, Love to take a walk in the spring to take pics of them.
