Dogwoods, Bluebonnets, and Wisteria

I finally took the time to take photos of the dogwoods. I had a wonderful drive home from subbing at high school today. Stopped by Mama's for a few minutes and ran the programs on her remote. LOL Don't know what she did, but she could only pick up one channel on her bedroom television. I handed her the remote and told her not to "touch anything from the waist down" on it.

The photos were all taken on the way through "the country" between her house and mine. This piece of property actually butts up to the back of our property. We were amazed at how close it really is after the property was logged last year. The logging definitely opened up the sky to the dogwoods. They are solidly peppered across the slope.
I mentioned them growing in layers when they weren't exposed to full sunlight.
Here's that "lollipop" tree again.
Just a note about the can tell where there's an old house place by what grows there...daffodils popping up in the middle of a pasture beside one old oak tree. Wisteria takes over everything. Someone once told me about her love for wisteria...but you only gave a plant to someone you hated. ;o) I stopped in the middle of the road to take these. The heady perfume nearly made me drunk!

The bluebonnets are in my yard. They just keep spreading and spreading much to Sam's chagrine. Of course I do everything I can to help them spread! From previous posts, you've seen them close to the house around the azaleas.
