I like it Larry
Larry Bliss: I am glad you do Chris. There will be an onslaught of flower photos to come...
Ohhhh, yes, Larry. I had almost forgotten about the dogwoods I used to love in Atlanta at this time of the year, always in time for Easter!
Larry Bliss: They decorate the South...

Oh lovely! Such beautiful colours. I wonder how it got the name "dogwood"?
Larry Bliss: They are quite lovely, with many varieties...
Does every state have a flower Larry?
Larry Bliss: I think so, Chad. North Carolina not only has a state flower, but a state shell, state dog, state bird, and a state tree, and several more that I can't remember. We don't do anything by halves in NC. smile
A fine choice for a state flower. Worcestershire has pears
Larry Bliss: Also a fine choice, to go with the steak sauce. smile
Dogwood has so many varieties! This is a beauty. The colour of the petals are the same colour as the tulip of my post yesterday
Larry Bliss: A great color knows no bounds...
That's a very pink variety!
