Spring is a special time for trees.  They get to dress up for the pollinators, floral biologists, and amateur photographers.  The first three shots are ornamental cultivars planted on the grounds of The New York Botanical Garden.  The last shot is flowering dogwood, a common component of northern hardwood forests in the Eastern U.S. All are spectacular in their finery.

i'm having a joyful time poking around your blog. here i am with the dogwood. i've made such beautiful pressed blossoms, an experiment of previous springs. i started out thinking they probably wouldn't do much tucked between the pages of thick book. i'll send you one and you'll see how fine they are.

I love it that you're rummaging around in here. Yes, dogwoods press and dry quite well if you take your time. Which I'm sure you did. Yes, pls send a sample of your work.
