Dogwoods

I recently had a person from Australia leave a comment on another site about a photograph  of a Dogwood. She said that she had never seen a Dogwood tree flowering in person. That was really amazing to read. Being from the South, I can’t image Springtime without the Dogwoods in bloom.

During our trip to Yosemite a couple years ago, I noticed that the Dogwoods growing in the area were different than the ones pictured here. Later I learned that there are over 60 different types of Dogwood trees and bushes.

    We have dogwoods in the UK – their stems – a rich red or golden yellow provide some of the rare colours of winter.And yes they do flower. Excellent images Philip.

      Thanks Andy. These will have red berries during the fall. I have read where there is a evergreen dogwood.

    Very nice images Phillip. I had no idea that there were so many types of dogwoods. Well done

      Thank you Len! I didn’t either, until I was reading about them recently. If I understand correctly the same one that grows in the south is the same one that grows all along the Eastern side of the US.

    This is such a beautiful series, Phillip. Gorgeous light and colours, and really interesting variations in composition!

      Thank you for noticing Andrew. I like to play around with each shot and look for an unique POV.

      I appreciate it Edith! I was really pleased with the that one as well.
