Pink Dogwood

When our house was built, the owners planted a pink dogwood tree at the corner of the house and it can be seen at both bedroom windows. We're lucky to have two pinks and one white on our property. Every spring over their bloom time the flowers glow in our bedroom and it looks like a valance over the windows -
 s-o-o pretty!

- outside our bedroom window -
We've had most of our trees die from diseases but our dogwood are beautiful, especially in the spring. Their  bloom time is all too short!

Our life has been disrupted in a huge way and a post will be coming at a later date.

Life interrupted? Oh no - hope it's a good one. Anxious to hear all about it.

Your Dogwoods are beautiful, Esther! I have some Kousa Dogwoods in my yard, which I chose based on reading about diseases that hit regular Dogwoods. I really love the way their branches are thinned enough that you can enjoy the shape of the tree {and, of course, the blooms}. They bloom a bit later than yours, but I enjoy seeing them too. They make for a wonderful view outside your windows.

The dogwood is gorgeous! I have one in my backyard, but not half as big. It does look like a pretty valance!

Hope all is well with you.

How nice it would be to wake and see this pretty pink Dogwood each day. We had a few pinks around here, mostly were white. I am from East Texas and we had plenty there.

Oh Esther, I truly hope your husband is okay.
Your dogwood is absolutely gorgeous!!! I adore pink dogwoods, they are the prettiest flowering tree in the world, in my opinion. How nice that you can see them out your windows!
Hugs, Cindy
