The Texture Touch

I never knew the beauty of the dogwood tree until I moved to Texas.  The blooms are crisp white with a dainty textured center, set atop graceful stems. One can't help but to photograph them from many angles.

P.S. Have you heard the news?  I just opened the boutique on a new site!
I'm celebrating all week long: May 21st - May 28th. Join me for an encore of Hot Deals each day!
