The Dogwoods are barking in Georgia!




The weather's been even crazier this year than normal, but
it's made for an incredibly beautiful Spring, with tons of huge
blossoms and blooms.  Our wild Dogwood is the perfect
example.  See what I mean...



Some of the blooms are nearly 5" across!









This fellow didn't survive the storm on Tuesday.





But on Wednesday the sun was bright, again...
