Cometh spring, one thing you would notice in every thicket in North Carolina are small trees or bushes that had been denuded of leaves all week, suddenly being clothed in gorgeous white flowers. These are the dogwood flowers, that are as eyecatching up close as when seen from away.

When backlit by the setting sun, these dogwood flowers shone bright as stars. 

These are flowers befitting a spot in an angel's crown

And another

This time I was a little delayed in getting out searching for them. Hopefully the next spring, I can be out before the leaves start appearing, to catch a tree in its all white bridal gown.
