I've been enjoying an online journaling class that has renewed my interest in drawing/sketching, so I've been taking some photos of the flowers that appear in my yard each year, hoping to get some of them into my journal before my muse deserts me again.
These are the lovely tulips that volunteer every year. We've been in the house for 15 years now and they were here when we came.
Here is the lovely pink dogwood that hides my dining room window, but it's so lovely in the spring that I wouldn't dream of removing it!
I'll add more photos in a new post since I can't yet figure out how to get them placed where I want them. I hope I'll have some drawings to show soon.

Ah, dogwood... my favorite tree! Yours is a prize Mary. Jake planted one for me as a mother's day gift a few years ago but it hasn't bloomed for me yet. Your yard is as lovely and gracious as you are.

What beautiful flowers, it warms my heart just looking at them..your weather is way ahead of us, my flowers are just coming up with little leaves forming.I can't wait for that first bud....what an odd but interesting tree trunk...If I lived near it would call for a few cuttings,nothing I love better then to share seeds and cuttings..
