Red Dogwood. Really a deep pink, but georgous. Just wait for the big show, this is just the preview, but I couldn't wait.
Classic White Dogwood.
My favorite of all the trees that bloom in the spring are the Dogwoods. They are just coming into flower but a few of them are out. The graceful cross shaped four-petal flowers have notches in the end of each petal. The legend is that they bloom at Easter to commemorate the crucifixion and that the notches are the nail marks. May be just a nice story but certainly a beautiful flower. When a large tree is in bloom the flowers lie in layers. I will get better pictures very soon.
