The Dogwoods are in full bloom

The Dogwood trees are in full bloom in East Tennessee. Great timing, the Dogwood Arts Festival is going on right now.
Knoxville is gorgeous with the dogwood blooms.
These were taken in one west Knoxville neighborhood Friday afternoon.

I love dogwoods and you've done a magnificent job of capturing them!

I've been to the Festival many times (we would go every year when we lived there) and it's a blast.

Those are so beautiful Leedra. When we lived in GA we use to see them like that everywhere. We don't see them as much here.

Rose said...

Oh, oh, oh! Sooooo beautiful!

Very pretty Leedra! The pinks and whites mix well.

I'll have to wait a few weeks before our dogwoods bloom here in Pa.

Beautiful pictures but have to comment on the spelling in #1. Maybe you did it to see who enlarged the picture...:-)

Richard - One time I put "Photography Buy Leedra", at least I caught it that time. I was in a very big hurry, to say the least.

So so pretty! I think I like the pink ones best nowadays. But when I was a kid my fav were the white ones. :)

The dogwood trees are beautiful. I like the pink and white dogwoods. They look great together.

I love seeing the dogwoods this time of year. The pink and white close together like your pictures are gorgeous. Our pink one is blooming --but the white ones aren't pretty yet... We are just far behind!!!
Hugs,
