A Repeat

I've posted this photo before, back in 2011, but, of all the dogwood blossoms I've photographed, this one is my favorite.  So, I hope you'll forgive me for a double posting. 

Interestingly, the actual blossoms are the tiny yellow flowers on the center mound.  The white 'petals' are really just bracts to attract pollinators.  Hmmm...maybe the dogwood trees think all insects are near-sighted!


  1. Actually Victoria - I never saw this lovely photo and so I am glad you posted it again. This is truly beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week-end.

  2. There's nothing to forgive ~ this is pure magic!
    Calendar worthy ;)

  3. Debbie and Vicki, thank you for your kind words; they are to me as nectar is to a bee!

  4. Such a pretty flower, I'm sure the variety I have never flowers, if so I must have missed them. The close up photo gives such detail, lovely.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
