Beautifull picture! I have grown to love the Dogwoods and love to drive around when they are blooming. I have 2 baby dogwoods growing in my yard. I guess the birds dropped the seeds. I don''t know what color the flowers will be as there is a white dogwood across the street from me and 2 houses up from me has pink dogwood trees. My hope is to cut down the maple tree in the front yard and let the do
