The dogwoods are in full, riotous bloom. I have 6 different dogwoods in my yard ranging from shrubby to tree type. Today I have chosen my newest dogwood: Venus Dogwood, to highlight. It's large lime tinged, white blooms, are everything I had hoped for when I planted it last fall. It is the focal point for my 'front yard rejuvenation' project. I purchased 'Venus' from The Plant Farm at Smokey Point, a wonderful (and huge) nursery north of Seattle. Now I am off to weed, weed, weed! Thanks to all of you well wishers, my elbow has improved. I only intend on weeding for a short time.
