It's a Dog(wood's) life...


Got Spring? As if the warm temps hadn't been a tip-off,  those beautifully graceful Dogwood trees, with their curvy branches and blooming pink cross-like buds make it official for moi.  This week's Project 52 prompt is "Things That Grow".  It might as well be "One of my FAV things that grow".



"Got Spring?"





"The Golden Hour"


I took these last evening as I was killing time waiting for Thing #3 to finish her voice lessons.  Seriously, seems as if I'm ALWAYS killing time waiting on her.  Which means, prime one-on-one time with "James Dean" without guilt.  The lighting was so rich as it was the Golden Hour.  Spring is revved up into high gear here in Peeeeay for sure.  Got Spring?  Got Dogwoods!

Happy Spring-ing to you all.
