Dogwood Days

Do you love dogwoods like I do?  Especially the pink ones!
I love that they seem to always bloom the week before Easter, no matter when Easter is.  The flowers are so delicate and pretty and the shape of the branches on the tree makes such a pretty picture.

I attempted to take some pictures of me with one of the pink dogwoods in my yard.  Between the sun and the gang of people passing by making me extremely self conscience I didn't do the best job. 
Here is a look at my attempt
I am wearing my cute little sweater that I wore with my maxi on Monday.
I made sure the little S tag was not still on it this time!
Excuse the cut off feet, but it was either feet
dogwood blooms. 
I thought the blooms looked much better!

I paired the multi shade honeysuckle cardi with this light blue top. 
I love the color combination. 
I added the darker blue belt and shoes(see 1st picture) to give the combination some added interest.
My pants are a small pinstripe khaki. 
No need for added jewelry due to the beaded neckline.  
I did add some darker blue earrings to balance out the darker blue at the waist and feet.

I love that cardigan!

I like blue and pink together too. I am jealous of all of those flowers, since we are having a late spring this year.

Love the color combination. I too adore the dogwood. I'm not sure there are any in northern California. I haven't seen any.

Isn't just so embarrassing when neighbors catch you during a photo shoot? I'm just like you. Super self conscience about that stuff. But you pulled it off. Great pics.

Flowers in bloom are my favourite part of spring (that and the cute baby animals!) I love the colour blocking here- you look great!

The pink dogwoods are my favorite. Every time we pass one, I make a point to point it out to DH. And, yes, I have noticed that they always seem to bloom in time for Easter. Supposedly the brown tips on the petals are emblematic of Christ's blood on the cross.

I am usually okay if they are kind of far away, but these people were only
about 15 ft in front of me. So embarrassed. I mean what must people
think??? I always have some story ready in my head about a husband in the
armed services or something. LOL

Glad you know the name of the tree. they also bloom in white which is much
more prevalant
