Bountiful Blossom

While I was exploring the Invermay Agricultural Research Centre campus last Sunday, I noticed a wonderful display of blossom coming into view. Hurrying over, I found this Cornus or Dogwood tree with copious amounts of blossom. Quite a find given that the Spring blossom is largely finished now! Dunedin, New Zealand.

The Horse Chestnut tree behind is also flowering and was looking very beautiful too.

  1. Dogwood trees were everywhere in the woods around my childhood home in Pennsylvania. They had the white flowers and my Mother planted some in our yard that had the loveliest shade of pink flowers. I have one small white flowering tree in my yard. I love the history my Gram used to tell us about the dogwood flowers. She had Horse Chestnut trees too. Thank-you for these beautiful photos, you always bring me joy.
