Dogwood



The showy white bracts of a dogwood tree, drenched with rain, begin to expand, while the tiny cluster of flowers within are still green and barely formed.

That is so cool. I've never seen them before. I love the flowers though. Next year, I'm keeping an eye out for these.

Kym - I planted this last year, so it's nice to see that it took root all right. I thought I had gotten a western variety, but now I'm not so sure.

Ron - You like that Jackson Pollock thing? The original website is even more fun: http://jacksonpollock.org/ (very very drippy)
