both open and closed

With grace and wonder
the blossoms open

each day

What beautiful blush blossoms! I am eagerly awaiting for our dogwood to start blooming. I barely see any buds on mine yet. Good thing I can come here and see yours :o)

Beauty beautifully captured! I also like how you framed your mother's tools. Just knowing that she touched and used those make it a very sentimental piece.

I'm not sure how I missed these, but I'm glad I found them now. I love dogwoods, they are absolutely gorgeous. I've been wanting one for my front yard for quite a while now. Now I want one even more!

Bim said...

So enjoyable! My favourite is the second one. Beautiful.

Prairie Girl Studio said...

oh wow ... these are absolutely sensational!!

i keep going back to the second image down where the blooms
almost take on an animated eye of sorts ... so cool.

but i absolutely love the bottom image where the one bloom is
stretch stretching out just pulling in every bit of the glory around it ...
spectacular!

thanks so much for letting us sit a while with you ...
enjoying your beautiful blooms ...
