My Favorite Tree

First: Many thanks to Carma at Lantern Moon who saw my last post and generously offered to put a new 10.5 in post to me. You can't beat that for great customer service!

My favorite dogwood tree is gloriously in bloom. OK, the iconic four petals are actually bracts, not petals, but who's counting? I have been watching this tree through every season for over a decade now. For the last few years I have made it my own little photography project. Here is a slide show of this wonderful tree through the seasons: The Dogwood Tree

Wow! What a slide show. I see a fiber project in almost every shot. The colors and shapes are amazing.

Nice slide show! I don't see many dogwoods in Reno.

Gorgeous flower, er, bract. No wonder Neil chose it for the cover of his second edition.

When I lived in Georgia the dogwood became my favorite all time tree! The grow everywhere there, like the pine trees in Washington. Every spring there is an explosion of color when every third tree breaks out in those 'not flower' flowers :) It was my favorite part of being there. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
