Dogwood Tree

We planted a baby dogwood tree last fall and it is flowering in our yard for the first time now. We both really love the look of a dogwood and we placed it where we can see it from the dining room window. Yesterday, we had rain showers and "sun breaks" - periods where it was beautiful and sunny. The above picture was taken during the rain and the following were taken outside during a sun break.

What pretty flowers on that tree! Will it get those big smushy berries on it, or is that a different kind of dogwood?

You have leaves and flowers. It looks so beautiful and summery. Do they smell nice too?

So pretty. I love the photo from the window and I'd love to come sit in your back yard and drink a tall glass of iced tea and enjoy the garden. Guess I'll just have to imagine...

Rachel, I don't think it gets berries.
Kris, no they don't smell at all that I can tell.
