The dogwood itself snagged me as I was hiding eggs for the girls this afternoon. We had a raucous egg hunt, and then I stood there trying to get my camera to focus on tiny things close up.
I used three layers of silk that I colored with markers. I am not at all sure about this one – it lacks contrast, but the form is completely correct. I think I need to do the coloring differently. Since the dogwood blooms are still opening, I'll have more chances!

Hmm. Perhaps I’ll have a camera for next weekend and you can play with it – I got my tax returns and this bum knee is keeping me from running around. I keep thinking this is the time.
beautiful dogwood…here, this year it’s bloodroot that’s got me smiling (so far).
…and your dogwood is exquisite.
