Weekend open thread

It’s gonna be a beautiful spring weekend here in Charlotte, NC, and with that in mind I thought it would be a good time to post a pic of what a typical pink dogwood around here looks like:

Beautiful, isn’t it?

They aren’t as popular around here as the white dogwood (which, I should note, is the state flower), but you see them often enough to admire their beauty. I have a thing for pink when it comes to trees and flowers. I also really like pink tulip trees, pink weeping cherry trees (although the one in that link doesn’t really look pink) and mimosa trees, which I used to call the “powder puff” tree when I was a little girl :D

I miss those days sometimes. Life seemed so much simpler then …
