Serenity Sunday: Dogwood becalmed

As a follow-up to yesterday’s post with the totally-unrecognizable dogwood blossoms being buffeted about by the breezes, here is my favorite of the shots I made of them during one of their brief moments of relative calm.  It’s a Pagoda dogwood, so it won’t produce the classic flowers one usually thinks of, with pink-edged and notched petals, but I really like the delicacy of these.  It’s also very young, and this is only its second spring to be producing blossoms.  We transplanted it to its current position about two years ago, and it seems to love its new environment.

    Interesting looking flowers. I don’t think I’ve seen a Dogwood like that particular one.

    I don’t recall seeing one either–before we got ours.

  3. It is so simple to tell when a plant is happy, they just let you know.

    I’ve never seen a dogwood like this before either! How fascinating.

    I love the purple bokeh in the background created by a lilac?

      Ah, what clever little eyes you have! It is indeed a lilac bush. I may go a few more feet back into what I call the jungle and get a lot closer to the blossoms today. In fact, I think I’ll go now…
