the dogwoods are in full bloom!

i happened to drive by this gorgeousness yesterday and my heart skipped a beat. so i immediately braked, u-turned, and jumped out of my car to snap a few shots. dogwoods are one of my favorite flowering trees. there's something so satisfying and comforting in the rounded, voluptuous, heart-shaped petals so perfectly encircling a little confetti ball of bliss.

Magnificent! I was in Connecticut this weekend and the dogwoods were mostly past their prime. This one is rich with peak color!

I'm so glad you u-turned.
