  16. Beautiful! Never seen a blooming dogwood, but I think, I've read about them in the books of Rita Mae Brown (criminal nouvels from Virginia).
    I have a cornus albus in the garden, but it has never bloomed until now.
    Have a nice weekend

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.
