Update 7/31/09, My photo got a runner up. Wow! I'm so surprised and grateful. Here are the comments from the judge Rob Cardillo: “This classically composed misty view beautifully evokes a spring morning. The massive trunk is nicely off centered and its main branch seems to embrace the delicate dogwood in an almost paternal gesture. Great job, Kim!”
Gardening Gone Wild's monthly photo contest, Picture This, has flowering trees for this month's subject. I have no thought of winning, but I wanted to show this photo because it's one of my favorites. I took this photo off my deck a few years ago. It was an early, foggy morning, and the dogwood appeard ghostly through the mists. We have a number of volunteer dogwoods, and they always delight us each spring with their masses of white flowers.
