Pink Dogwood Blossoms

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

One of the joys of Spring is seeing the pink dogwood tree in our front yard in bloom.  This picture is from my archives, but I like it for the beautiful shade of pink in the blossoms.

It is indeed a beautiful blossom. We had white and red twigged dogwood. They are shrubs here and the red twigged variety is especially nice for color in the winter...:)

I have found it extremely hard to shoot one dogwood blossom and do it justice. But YOU have done it here.

Oh, I love your dogwood tree! The color is fabulous. I have seen a few light pink ones up here in the Finger Lakes of NY but mostly they are pure white. I don't know why we have not planted one of these. I know we would enjoy it. Your blossoms are gorgeous!

I've seen lots of the white ones, however I don't think I've ever seen the pink ones in person, only in photos. These are gorgeous!

Marie said...

I really miss those pink dogwoods! The white ones too. It's hard knowing that such beauty should be there, and not getting to enjoy it anymore. I have new beauty here to appreciate though!

Linda said...

Wow, that's an intense shade of pink! Our pink dogwood is lighter in color.

Lynda said...

I don't remember seeing as many dogwoods this year. I think it's because of the rain - - - the flowers turned to leaves very quickly. I love their colors against the darker greens of the forest trees though.
