This dogwood is the star of the show in my garden right now, though the others come close. The dogwoods turn first and the other trees seem to wait for them, giving them center stage. The leaves of this one look like rubies hanging in the sky when the sun shines through them.
Some other show-offs in the garden now are the pyracantha, loaded with berries,
and the mums, of course,
But I also love the hydrangeas at this time of year
and the finch at the feeder at every season of the year!
