The beautiful Dogwood is in full bloom this week in the mountains of North Carolina.  I am always in awe of this incredible display of flowers in the sky, and always look so forward to April to see this sight again.

  1. It always puzzles me how the "flowers" stay on long after their function to attract pollinators has been completed. You can see that the real flowers at the center of the group of bracts are beginning to develop into fruits. I wonder why it is so. Magnolias do the same.
