Twilight Miracles

After all, I don't see why I am always asking for private, individual, selfish miracles when every year there are miracles like white dogwood.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh


The blossoms flicker in the twilight like fairy lanterns. They seem to float without anchor, magical and ethereal. So delicate that a touch on a perfect white petal will turn it brown, so for a moment the forest gives us this pristine wonder.



Until next time,

  1. So beautiful. Mine haven't bloomed just yet. Soon, I hope. When I was a little girl my Mother used to say the little ones were "Puppywoods". Have a super day!

    1. I never even saw a dogwood tree until we moved here and now I so look forward to their blooming each year. Amazing what pleasures we can find when we least expect them!

  3. Look how they seem to glow in the darkness! I noticed a few days ago that our town's dogwoods are just starting to swell in the bud. Spring is here!

    1. The dogwoods single the coming of spring here in the mountains but spring has not truly arrived until we have snow on the dogwoods.That occurred a few days after I took this picture so now I can say spring truly has arrived.

  4. Good Evening Patrica, Your Dogwood flowers look beautiful.... I have never seen a tree like it. The flowers remind me a little of Clematis. It must be pure joy to sit in a chair and just gaze at the flowers in the dark.

    1. Each year we look forward to the blooming of the dogwoods as the true sign that spring is here. The saying is that it is not truly spring until we have had snow on the dogwood and that happened last week while I was away. We still don't begin planting until Mother's day which is mid May in the US because a late frost is always possible in the mountains and often catches the unwary.
