Every Year I return

Those of us who take pictures often return to a special place at certain times of the year. For me it is the dogwood. In the midwest this time of year is replete with wild dogwoods around each curve on the two lane.

I return each year to this particular dogwood. Unlike most, this dogwood has a substantial trunk and the perfect perfect it reminds me of a hand sculpted Japanese Bonsai tree. When this dogwood blooms...I know that spring has arrived. To quote a character close to my heart...May it live long and prosper.

Dogwoods are very special

(More than I can say for word verification.)

I can see why you return to this one. It is spectacular.

J...this is such a stupid question and pardon the ignorance on my part but do you have dogwoods in Australia? I am guessing that you do?

Thanks Betty and great to hear from you again! Yes this is a special one. I posted a picture of it 2 years ago and looked back at it and it is almost identical to this one but I just had to take it's picture again!

Yes, spectacular.
There is a dogwood in the park that I love to check every year. I missed it this year and couldn't believe it.
Thank you for a very nice "instead."
