The explosion of color that was my yard for the last two weeks is sadly winding down... but I was able to get these two dogwood blooms this morning. I wish it could be like this all year!
Keep Makin' Art
PS - I have had a few people ask me lately about my secrets to photographing flowers. There are no great secrets... but in a future post I'll give you 5 tops for more successful Flower photos outdoors.

Superb photos, as usual. I shall look forward to your coming post. Flowers do make me think that those who maintain that transience is what gives beauty might have a point.

I look forward to that Carl. These are gorgeous photos. The dogwood are in full bloom here too - such a beautiful tree. We have a Japanese dogwood - its flowers are a lovely pinkish colour.

Thank You both. I have been working over the post with tips for better flower photos in my mind. I will try yo post it tonight.

The dogwoods are beautiful Carl. I will bring measurements of my present frame in the living room and maybe we can figure one of your photos to replace the one over the couch. The colors in the dogwood would be perfect there.
