Pink, White, and Sorta Blue

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.

Yay! I love dogwood. And Nina Simone, too. What a splendid start to the week. Thank you, Speedway.

You're very welcome, Dive. I like dogwood, too. If you care to see some more try this link -

ANd here's a bit of Nina I find myself listening to over and over. Though her diction seems mushy to me, overall I find the piece incredibly beautiful.
