The Next Blossoms

These are some of my favourite blooms of the season: Dogwood blossoms. They range from deep pink to bright white to this in-between mix seen here. The dew/rain from last night was still on the petals when I snapped this on my way to the office this morning. The entire tree turns into bright pink or bright white, and I love driving around town and seeing all of them. Fortunately, the dogwoods stay in bloom for a reasonable amount of time...unlike daffodils and tulips. Next on the agenda: Irises!

You grow many things that we can not. Wish we had some of your rain. Nice blog...

Yeah, and then there are lilacs, that only last about 1-1/2 weeks, if you are lucky. Ours are almost gone already, and I think we are getting upwards of two weeks out of them this year. Wish they could be around longer.
