Our Mother's Day Dogwood Blossoms for Everyone

We took a ride in the Buick on Mother's Day afternoon, through some streets in Southeast Portland. One particular dogwood, among dozens, stood close enough to the sidewalk that I was able to pull over and take a few photos. I held a small branch still and took this photo blindly pointing the camera toward that blossom. I know it's not in focus on the blossom, but still I do like this photo. The green grass in the background makes the photo, I think.

I took this one looking up into the tree.

I wanted to share it with all of you. I know I'm late on Mother's Day, but nevertheless, I'm sending out my best wishes to you.

I don't know when we are going to have Mother's Day in France but it was not yesterday for sure. That is why I did not visit my blogger friends' blogs. Happy belated Mother's Day to your mother and to you.

So right you are about expectations for the sun - especially this year! I think there were a few patches of blue early in the day, but by the time I got to Sunday Market, it was overcast. No big surprise :)
