Re: Dogwood Nouveau


After having visited the National Arboretum last weekend, I was struck by the need to do something with the humble Dogwood. One of my favorite trees.

5 colors on Brown.

Thank you very much - I really toyed with the palette until I settled on the brown shirt.

Holy crap. This is win from the flower "go." I am a HUGE dogwood fan, and I love LOVE that this isn't pink and sparkly and suchlike. It's lovely, but not in-your-face flowery. You know I like you stuff, Mr. CFDunbar, Sir, but this....

This is splendid. I love LOVE it! Consider me in for 2 at the least! Well done!

Thanks. I'm a big fan of yours too. The teal light spots really help make it pop.

Thanks Caladria. The little wife and I are planning to "install" a dogwood into the back yard this year because we were so impressed with that part of the Arboretum. And there are many stories and meanings behind the dogwood.

Thanks. I knew there was a reason why I liked Missouri ;-)

Thanks so much. So.... did you head over to the reckoning and buy something? Just curious since you mentioned in the last derby that you couldn't vote yet.

I really wish this was in black because I don't really wear brown but other than that this design is amazing!

Call me crazy, but I think it's great on brown. It looks good with the black of the tree and the white of the blossoms, it's a great color scheme.

Plus I enjoy wearing brown shirts, and I've been told I look good in that color. ;)

Beautiful. I think this is my favorite in the derby. I'm still getting a grip on this style, and with this design I can really see the appeal. Great composition.

Re: Dogwood Nouveau


I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all of you who have voted and made comments. The dogwood has a very deep and meaningful symbolism to me and it touches me that you wooters appreciated it enough to keep me in the fog.

Happy wooting to all.
