Periwinkle is growing on the side of my house: it’s a great ground cover for shady spots.
The lilac blooms have already fallen off my neighbor’s bush. They don’t last long.
The dogwood flowers are such a pleasure to view in bloom.
A watercolor with goache I did in 2008 of dogwood flowers

I definitely know these beauties in my neck of the woods. Nice shots of them.
Very nice and the painting is wonderful! I’ve always wanted to paint. The closest I get is the photography. 🙂
Awesome collection of photos Leora, and the last one makes a fabulous watercolor. Thank you for sharing, and have a great week.
