The dogwood blooms are beautiful. I saw one tree at Artesian Lakes (near Cleveland, TX) that was in bloom a few weeks ago.  Dogwood always makes me stop and take notice of their beauty.

Have a fabulous week!

Meg,

You, too!  I didn't know there was a Cleveland in Texas.  Gotta Google!

Great photo Mike.  The dogwoods in Southern Oregon are blooming right now as well.

We are currently going through a cool spell which the locals call "Dogwood" winter. We still have 2 more to go before it is officially Spring/Summer...

Great close up...love the blue sky behind the tree. Oh, how nice it is that spring is here at last.

Posted by John Thomas, EcoBroker, MSEE, MBA (E3 Green HOMES) over 10 years ago

John,

That blue sky made the photo!

Leah,

Now if only I can stop sneezing...

Caron,

Amen to that!

Sharon,

You're most welcome!

Michael,

But I'll bet your state flower, the Iris, is in bloom.

Tony,

You're welcome!

Tim,

Thanks!

Gary,

I used to live up your way, and it's a beautiful corner of this world.

Dogwoods are some of my favorite blooming trees. This pic reminds me of one of the puzzles I used to put together as a kid -- challenging with all of the branches and blooms against the solid blue sky.

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) over 10 years ago

hi Mike,

Beautiful photo....we have dogwoods here too, however not in bloom yet.

Nice contrast between the white flowers and the blue sky. The dogwood is a great part of spring. :)

This is just beautiful.  It really makes me long for those Summer days!  We are supposed to hit high 60's today and I am really looking forward to a walk in the sunshine!

Posted by Sharon Tara, New Hampshire Home Stager (Sharon Tara Transformations) over 10 years ago

Sharon,

Summer's coming!

Charles,

I didn't know that; thanks for commenting!

Steve,

That is is!

Jo,

Soon...

John,

It would make a great 1,000 piece puzzle, wouldn't it?

Hi Mike, that is a real postcard photo. Nicely captured. I grew up with a Dogwood tree in our yard and it was so beautiful. Don't see all that many and haven't seen so far here in CA.

Posted by William Johnson, Retired Real Estate Professional (Retired) over 10 years ago

Beautiful shot, Mike! Wish we had them here!

Hi Mike - A lovely display! The dogwood tree was always one of my grandmother's most favored, and in memory of her, we have two planted in our back yard. I can't wait for them to bloom!

Wow, They are pretty.  I don't think I have ever seen Dogwood in real life.  Do we have them in Arizona? 

Posted by Doreen McPherson, Phoenix Arizona Real Estate ~ (Homesmart ~ Scottsdale ~ Tempe) over 10 years ago

Doreen,

Apparently our climate (at least in parts of the state) will allow the dogwood to grow.  I googled the pink dogwood, and found this bit of knowledge:

"If you live in Alaska, Arizona, California or Hawaii, growers are not allowed to ship this tree to you due to those states' agricultural laws that have been enacted to prevent certain insect pests and plant diseases."

Mission Hills mystery woman,

(LOL, Karen...)   You need a signature!

Debi,

According to Google, they grow in Colorado.

William,

California is pretty restrictive on what they allow horticulturally; see my comment to Doreen.  And thanks for the compliment!

I had forgotten about those restrictions.  I remember when we were younger getting asked about having fruits, vegetables and plants coming into AZ. 

Posted by Doreen McPherson, Phoenix Arizona Real Estate ~ (Homesmart ~ Scottsdale ~ Tempe) over 10 years ago

I also kind of remember my grandmother not liking that rule... she probably broke it, too.  It's to keep the bugs and disease out because it can cause such devastation to the crops.  It's the same reason for California, as well.  That spreads like wildfire.

Doreen,

I think I would have liked your Grandma!
