“Pink Flowering Dogwood” – Ancaster, Ontario

“Pink Flowering Dogwood” - Ancaster, Ontario

“If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for a moment.”
― Georgia O’Keeffe

Until last weekend, I did not know these existed. I love dogwoods and have made many photos of the gorgeous Sierra Dogwoods of California’s Yosemite National Park as they gleam bright white against the dark pine forests. The first time I saw a photo of them, I knew I had to experience them for myself. I did that a few years back and absolutely loved it.  Now, I come across a pink variety is full splendour and am mesmerized.

This dogwood tree is in my great Aunt’s neighbour’s garden. When I first saw it I was not sure what kind of tree it was, until I looked closer and saw the typical dogwood leaves and delicate blossoms. Truly, a wonderful ornamental tree. The guides say it will survive in my zone and I’m tempted to try it for myself. I’d love to have one of these in my backyard.
