Alternate Leaf Dogwood

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 11 May 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I am trying to increase the number of native shrubs, trees and flowers on our property. I have two of these bushes, which are attractive to songbirds and small mammals.

I like the subtletness of the monochrome green palette - which makes the delicate glowing buds shine out even stronger. They seem to be reaching out to the sun on their slender stems. Beautiful.

The muted, soft colors and the shallow DOF create a fantastic mood. This is a wonderful image, Anita!

Just gorgeous!!
Wonderful green tones! Although the color of the background is almost the same as the color of the leaves, the plant really stands out in this setting ..........
