    so pretty!

  2. MK says:

    Nice photograph – nice composition & the perfect DOF for my taste. Nice also to see what dogwood flowers look like (though I won’t remember tomorrow!).

    Aren’t they beautiful? You know Eliza, the other day a took a photo for you but I don’t know how to send it to you. I saw these bottles of water with a label Elisa Wasser (or Eliza Water). It’s a bit silly but I had to think of you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Just gorgeous! I love dogwood, and pink especially! Beautiful shot.

  11. You captured one of springs crowning achievements. I hope these are the Dogwoods you are trying to establish, looking good!

  12. Kris P says:

    Dogwoods! Yet another plant on the long list of those I wish I could grow here.

    Reblogged this on Anita Dawes & Jaye Marie and commented:
    Lovely flowers, wish we had them in UK…

  14. Kathy Sturr says:

    Oh, I never met a Dogwood I didn’t like … this is spectacular! I didn’t realize they came in pink although I think I did see a few further South. Wonderful photo Eliza, as always. I’m blushing.

  15. Brian Skeys says:

    It is easy to forget how attractive some flowering shrubs can be.

  16. Cathy says:

    Very lovely, Eliza. And I’m glad you posted it today! Made me rejoice in the midst of sadness … I just bought a pink Cornus kousa ‘Satsomi’ today, to replace my much-mourned Magnolia soulangeana. Your wonderful picture was a sign (from the blue – although a different species!) of happier days to come.

  17. I love Cornus and yours is a delight

  18. ladyfi says:

    Such soft tones. A lovely shot!

  19. Beautiful. Wish I could grow that here.

  20. Jewels says:

    So beautiful….

  21. I like the color balance on this, Eliza. I see it as an interplay between two artists- you and nature.

    Love the lighting on the flower which is the main focus

  23. Brenda says:

    I hate to yammer on with the same comment as everyone else, but I can’t help myself. That really is an excellent photo.

  24. Healing through Photography says:

    I wish I could just like all your posts :p
    Love your work, Eliza!

    Dogwood doesn’t necessarily make me think of pretty flowers. It sounds more like the next town to Tombstone in the Wild West. The flowers are nice, though. ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Beautiful capture! I love that sweet pink color! And what a cute name, dogwood! Lol My dog’s name is Dagwood but we call him, Woody, usually (after the doll in “Toy Story”) and whenever I write “Dagwood,” my autocorrect changes it to dogwood. I always thought it must be a kind of wood! Lol ๐Ÿ˜€
    Very pretty! โค

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Kim. ๐Ÿ™‚ Dagwood is another word for this plant, more for its European cousin, though. ‘Dag’ referred to the straight branches that were used for making arrows. Another derivative of the word we use is ‘dagger.’ (Sorry if this is TMI! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

      • That’s really interesting! I never knew that Dagwood is a plant! I heard the name when I was little and found it really amusing. So I named my dog it and call him Woody (sometimes Woodward) because I love the movie.
        I love your extensive knowledge of plants, flowers, gardening…! Thank you for sharing!
        I love learning new things, it’s definitely not too much info!

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Glad to hear it!
