Storm Clouds and Dogwood

Nature seems to be trying to make up for our unusually warm dry winter with an unusually cool wet spring.  Most of the precipitation is in the northern part of California but this current series of storms should make it to the south.  Not enough but we are grateful for whatever we get.
Find more beautiful skies at SkyWatch, Friday, hosted for us by Sylvia and Sandy.

Oh, the contrast between those grumpy gray skies and the breathtaking beauty of the dogwood makes for a gorgeous capture, Martha! Hope you've had a good week!

Even your stormy skies are beautiful! I love dogwood and hope there are still some in bloom when we get back to Oregon (in June).

I recognize those skies! Ours seems to promise rain - but then default. I bought a small pagoda dogwood, but alas, the deer seem to be getting more out of it than me.

Great photo with sunshine on the dogwood blossoms and the dark sky in the background. I love the contrast.

Had to come back and look at this photo again, then I just had to tell you that I love it!
