I've always had difficulty getting any pretty shots
of dogwood trees, but this year have managed a few.
This may be because I'm outside more often
and could see when they were getting ready to bloom.
This shot is about a week old; all the petals are floppy now
and beginning to fall.
Usually, these pretty blue-violet flowers are
too far away to get a clear shot.
This time, I found a group of them
at my feet as I passed by the driveway
near where they are planted.
And, just because I like it, here's Nina Simone,
playing Love Me or Leave Me.
I was going to insert Little Girl Blue, but
it was too draggy for my current mood.
