DOGWOOD

The dogwood blossoms are well open. And we had some rain this morning so it really brought out the color.

Close up of the blossoms.

You can even see the little raindrops on the blossoms. Got some good use out of my digital camera and tripod this morning. And after downloading how many sets of pictures onto the computer it finally sank in, duh, you make your own cd's. So, I spent some time putting together a compilation for the sister who live in eastern Oregon and hasn't had a chance to get over since we've made the big chages. How long have I had the camera and computer? Like, duh. read the options on the side once in awhile Jackie.

I love these photos. The wet blossoms are gorgeous. Good job!
One of these days, I need to back up my pics on CD too. It takes me a long time to learn each feature on the camera. I've a long way to go. --Cin

Around here they call the red dogwoods Cherokee Chiefs. I am not sure why...but I do love them.

Technically, what we think of as the "petals" on these things are bracts.  The actual flowers are those little things in the middle.  

Dogweeds up here are just starting to bloom.  And my crab trees are blooming...for all that the weather has been so ugly that you can hardly tell.  What happened to the sun???  Lisa  :-]
