Dogwood Tree...

I have been trying since last Wednesday
to take some nice pictures of my dogwood tree
to show you.

White dogwood flowers on white sky
are not too impressive looking:-)

Today... I had a quick peak of blue skies...

(click photos to enlarge)

The dogwood is in the corner of my front yard.


here is a close-up with the lovely blue sky..


Did you know the actual flower of the dogwood
is the tiny cluster of green in the center?
the white or pink part is actually the bracts.


Here is my little garden angel..
hiding in the Pink-A-Boo bush.


She holds a clutch of moonstone eggs...
in a bed of purple stones.


Today I am joining two great blog parties...

Come visit Kathleen at Faded Charm
for WHITE WEDNESDAY


And... Come Visit
for OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY


Thanks for visiting with me today,

Hi Bella,
What a lovely tree!! I'm not sure if folks grow dogwoods in my state; I'm sure they must, but I don't seem them often!
You must have the most amazing yard from what I can see in the photo!

Hi Bella
You took some good photos of your dogwood and I love the white picket fence.
I have two pagoda dogwoods out the front but the flowers are not as showy as yours.

We also have a dogwood (peach) and I wait every year for that tree to bloom, as I'm sure you do. Such a joy. Thanks for showing us. Hope you'll stop by if you have time. Jane F.

Hi Bella!
Your tree photos were well worth the wait!! It is gorgeous and I love your white fence too!
The foxgloves in your header pic have me green with envy . . . we can only grow them as annuals here. Yours are breathtaking!!

Dogwood abounds in this area, love them. However, I don't have one in my yard. Yours is lovely.

Your garden angel looks so happy holding her moonstone eggs a perfect companion for the lovely dogwood tree. And love the banner, the foxgloves are a must in any self respecting spring time garden.

Happy Outdoor Wednesday,
