i do love a dogwood tree in bloom and your photos are wonderful.

Is it any wonder I linked to your blog today... I was already in awe of your spring and garden posts... this just proves my point.

Amazing! Don't you love the blooming trees in the PNW. Alicia, which camera did you take these with?

i am in heaven ♥

Love them - so beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen dogwood in real life...

oh. my. gosh. those are so beautiful. i SO wish I could be there in person to see them. I actually clicked over from reader to leave this comment. thank you for the photos!!!

I know it's truly spring when the dogwoods bloom! It's like a flurry soft pink snow when the winds catch them :)

You have such a gift. Those shots are lovely.

Holy cow, I wish I could crawl into those photos. Amazing.

Absolutely beautiful! I think I could look at these pictures all day.

Beautiful pictures. We are not there yet...but we will be soon.

So so pretty. I've been noticing them open up. I think I might love pink dogwoods the best of all these blooming trees in Portland.

I love these rich, translucent colors!!! And i love love dogwoods... Easter had the best blooms this year.


Wish I had a dogwood tree here in the south. Alas, I have to settle for magnolias.

Such lovely blooms. You captured them beautifully.

Those photos are absolutely beautiful. I have a soft spot for dogwood trees.

So beautiful! Ours is about to bloom. I bought my house for this dogwood I'm pretty sure.

i wish i was a fairy in that tree...


Lovely, Alicia. The dogwoods on this side of the country have been particularly beautiful and full this year, too. Thanks for the gorgeous photos.

Ah, your dogwoods are such a pretty pink. Ours are lovely too, but are snowy white. I do love a dogwood in bloom.
