Keeping my fingers crossed

When we first moved into our home almost 3 years ago my mom pointed out that the tree growing at the end of our deck was a Dogwood.  I was so excited and anxiously waited for spring to arrive to see my Dogwood tree in full bloom.  April came and went, and nothing.  No blooms.  So maybe it wasn't a Dogwood after all.  I was sad.  Then last year I discovered 3 or 4 blooms!  It was a Dogwood!  This year that number tripled! There's been about 12 blooms.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that next year it will triple again and so on!

A few shots from yesterday.  I love the first one with the bloom starting to open.
