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.

  1. 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.

    1. 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.
