iPhone-o-Gram!

The movie was hilarious!

We just stopped for frozen yogurt and I had to run out into the parking lot to capture the beautiful dogwood tree in full bloom.

Dogwoods are one of the symbols of a Southern Spring that make my hear soar! I just wish they lasted longer!!

So glad they do not show any sign of hail damage, nothing sadder than a newly bloomed dogwood with all the blossoms torn off in a hail storm.

Happy Spring and Happy Sewing :0)

Reminds me of that RI lady that stopped just for some rainbow sherbet, and bought a Powerball ticket -- and won -- sole winner -- 336M. :) And she was/is 81!! She set up the "Rainbow Sherbet Foundation" for her/her heirs to enjoy the winnings! :) Best of luck to you, too!!

Dogwoods mean Springtime in my town in SE Washington State also. Can hardly wait to see them this year. Putting an extra quilt on my bed today...

Dogwoods and Magnolias are my favorites! And we've just seen a bunch of the magnolias.....can't wait to drive through the Carolinas in the next 2 days and see the dogwoods! Woohoo! Thanks for the preview shots!

I love the Dogwood trees! :) They are just starting to open up here in Indiana. Thanks for the lovely pictures.

I'm originally from North Carolina, now a transplant to Texas. Really miss the dogwoods, but the bluebonnets almost make up for them!

Bonnie, I'm in Charleston SC. Would you believe my neighbor cut lots and lots of branches out of their dogwood tree...it's in full bloom! All those beautiful blooming branches are lying in a heap at the end of the driveway. Geesh.....Seems they could have atleast waited another week or two, eh?

There are dogwoods in East Texas.

Gorgeous sight, Bonnie. To quote a song from an old musical, "ain't nature grand?"

I love dogwoods!... we had one in our backyard as a kid that I used to climb up in. The one in our current front yard isn't blooming yet, but our apple tree in the back is covered in blossoms! Really hoping the weather doesn't freeze again and kill them all. We could use another bumper crop for home grown dried apple pies and apple sauce!

LOVE the dogwoods. We have two, one in our back yard and one in the front. Just starting to see the tiny yellowish flowers popping through the buds. In a week they'll be full white flowers. I can't wait.

WOW! What a huge dogwood tree! Ours in northern Indiana are much smaller and just seem to float in the woods-they are all budded up now and will probably be blooming with the next warm weather. I have loved the dogwood blossom since I was a kid in Misouri, where it is the state flower.

I'm here in mid Maine and it is snowing! So thank you for posting such a beautiful photo of the Spring that will soon be coming to New England. Just 6 more days and I'm off to Holland to see the tulips. Can you tell - I love flowers.

Gorgeous! My parents have 2 dogwoods but they never had that many flowers. Thanks for sharing
