Spring in Chesterfield Missouri

If we were living in Missouri right now, I bet I could look out my kitchen window and see beautiful white and pink dogwood flowers peeking out from behind the bare brown trees in the woods behind our house. Oh how I miss that beautiful spring show. (This photo, however, was taken several years ago in late spring behind the Lion House where there used to be one lone dogwood tree. I don't know if it's still there.)

I remember those trees. Dad usedto tease us kids that the trees were made out of "dog". I really liked living in Missouri. I can still remember our old address there...can you? I guess when it is the first address you learn in school you remember it. I also remember that at Christmas time dad bought a Christmas tree still with it's root ball, and we had it in a silver bucket and then when it got warmer dad planted it outside of the Laundry room window. Such good memories. Thatnks for the walk down memory lane. It's always nice to think back on your childhood and smile. You and Dad always made things so nice, it didn't matter that we weren't as close to extended family for those years.

Ode to the dogwood, peeking through the woods with it's subtle little splendor. Pink and white all over Virginia. Never see this scarlet before. Gorgeous!

What photoshop trickery have you done to the background?

Answering 'Me's question.....I have no clue, too long ago. I remember the background was really busy and I couldn't isolate just the flower, so I did it with a filter on PS.
