Lovely White

Our Kousa Dogwood's flowers have turned from yellowish green to lovely white!  

Reaching for the sky!

Beautiful white flowers with a crystal clear blue sky.

Our back yard 

I finally added some annuals on the side of our porch (to the left in the above picture).  

We plan to have the downspouts buried and maybe install a small stone paver patio in front of the porch with a half wall around the River Birch tree.  And possibly throw in a small water feature....after all one can dream!  

We can't believe how fast this River Birch tree has grown.  

We get the hot afternoon sun on the porch but with the growth of the River Birch tree and Leyland cypresses we finally have more shade here now.  

Beautiful annual flowers!

It's nice to have some color by the porch now. 

Hope you are having a lovely day!

  2. So beautiful pictures from your garden!
    The white that stretches to the sky, beautiful!
    Beautiful backyard:)
    Wish you a lovely weekend, hug Hanne

  3. Nice pictures! Wish we could have that type of dogwood here. I don't think it is hardy in my zone?

  4. I sure used to love to see the wild dogwood trees in CA but none here that's for sure.

  5. This is suck a pretty tree. Nothing like it here in AZ. :)

    Have a great weekend!
