Dogwoods in Bloom

The dogwoods are lighting up the forests as they continue to bloom. I am amazed and thankful at how many dogwoods we have in the woods surrounding us.

This one is too tall to get a close up. When the others bloom I'll try to get a closeup to  show you. With all these flowers in bloom I'm inspired to make more pieces of pottery with flowers so stay tuned for that. We got most of the cabinets in for my studio I'll take a photo today to show you coming up next. Thanks for visiting and for all your comments.


  1. This week we're due to have another freeze, which is called Dogwood Winter. There's also a Blackberry Winter, but I don't have any blackberries around to tell when it's coming. Our area has freezes sometimes as late as Mother's Day. Hope your plants are all well!

  2. Hi Barbara, thanks, oh I think we might get a freeze too, the last one set the plants we planted back a bit and I am not sure they will recover, I hope they do because they weren't cheap. I think we have blueberries or huckleberries up on the back hill but it's pretty steep to go up and look. Ha.

  3. The dogwoods are looking great. I was just thinking about putting them on Monk's Pillows.

  4. I love your photos of the flowers and trees in your area. Such a treat!

  5. Hello Linda,

    How delicate these flowers look as they appear on the bare branches of the trees. They make such a wonderful tracery of colour in the woods. No wonder that they inspire you to create something beautiful!

  6. Our dogwoods aren't in bloom yet; thanks for the preview.

  7. We are going to see the dogwood bloom in the Sierra Nevada this weekend. I love dogwood trees, too. Thanks for the preview.

  8. Beautiful, and looking at your sidebar I love the stacked towers!

  9. Oooh. Dogwood bliss. Looking forward to the photos - and to where your muse takes you.

  10. Love Dogwoods and used to have them in my yard in Maryland. Very pretty!

  11. Hi Lori, thanks, oh would love to see those.

    Hi Gigi, thanks, oh we are enjoying all the spring growth around here.

    Hi Jane and Lance, thanks, the white of the dogwoods is rather creamy and the flowers are quite strong even though they look delicate.

    Hi Joanne, thanks, oh I am enjoying all the flowering trees here blooming everywhere.

    Hi Charlene, thanks, oh we used to live in the Sierra Nevada and saw the dogwoods everywhere, the eastern one is a bit different than the western but just as enjoyable, I am sure you'll have a good time.

    Hi Annie, thanks, I have made another tower today and will be making more this week, thanks so much.

    Hi Elephant's Child, thanks, spring is coming on ever so slowly with much to appreciate as it arrives.

    Hi Marguerite, thanks, they are a delight to see so frequently around here.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
