This photo has been seriously compromised (artificially lightened) so you can see the wonder of the old dogwood. Apparently, many years ago it was not uncommon for 2 different colors to be grafted together. This tree is half pink, half white. The shot was taken later in the evening than it should have been for maximum effect, but I hear it's going to be ugly for the next couple of days and didn't want to miss it in bloom. It's really quite a beautiful sight, if a bit freakish.
