We're in the Pink

Our Japanese Dogwood is blooming. Like crazy.

Our Japanese Dogwood is in bloom

I guess it is taking kindly to our wettest spring in 50 years. Me (and my poppies)? Not so much.

Sun please.

I love that blossom. Enjoy! My poppies are doing better than usual this year and I am thrilled about that.

Beautiful picture!

Had no idea this was called a Dogwood tree/plant? Our neighbours have one that’s blooming white and hangs over in our garden. They always trim the plant to function as a hedge on their side, but on our side we always let the branches grow.

girgeous! I'm glad someone is happy with this damp weather we've been having - almost makes it tolerable!

Beautiful! We have dogwood with white flowers that grows wild here. The blooms are small though (around 1-2" in diameter). How big are these flowers?

Another beautiful photo Krista. The colours almost don't look real and the detail in the centre of the flower is most interesting...well done you clever thing!

Love the shape and simplicity of those dogwood flowers. You're so lucky to be able to grow the Japanese variety. I wonder if it would grow here? ... Gotta check that out...

Weather is SO weird this year. We should be having consistent temps of 100+. Today we had rain!! But it's supposed to be 105 by July 4th. :(
