Thursday Tree Love: Blooming Dogwoods


“The really happy person is the one who can enjoy the scenery, even when they have to take a detour.”
― Sir James Jeans (1877-1946, English physicist, astronomer, and mathematician.)

Dogwoods in Bloom

The dogwood trees seem to have blossomed overnight here in North Carolina. These in my neighborhood got me to pause and take a slight detour. Some detours turn out to be blessings.

Below are some of my favorite dogwood blossom photos from recent years:

  1. Gorg! Many of our dogwoods are just beginning to open up. Next week, they’ll be in full bloom. I’m so looking forward!

  2. JoAnna, your lovely photos make me nostalgic for the dogwoods and other spring flowers I used to enjoy in Virginia. 🙂

  3. The trees are beautiful. Just curious, do they cause allergies?

    • I’m glad you like the trees, Lauren. I’m not sure about the dogwoods, but the pine pollen is a powerful allergen. Before the dogwoods blossomed, the yellow pine pollen started showing up everywhere – on cars, on the street … I have to take an over-the-counter allergy pill almost every day. I don’t think the dogwoods have nearly as much impact as the pines.

  4. They are a splendid display

  5. They look beautiful.

  6. Thank you for sharing lovely pictures!!.. brighten up the day!!.. no blooms here as of yet but because the trees here furnish a home for some of the backyard creatures and protection from the elements each tree is a tree of love in their own way, much like the rest of the plants and creatures on the path least traveled… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed the dogwood blossoms, Larry. Thank you for your beautiful recognition that, “each tree is a tree of love in their own way, …..” Peace and blessings to you and yours.

  7. Gorgeous detour! Enjoy your Spring!!
