I took these pictures of dogwood trees today, at Greenfield Hill Congregational Church, in Fairfield CT. I have two more posts with dogwood pictures from there, below.

The church's annual Dogwood Festival is May 11-13, 2012, but I think the flowers will be gone by then. Someone said Spring is about 3 weeks early here this year, and it looks like that could be true.

"Spirotangle" - ATC

This week’s Think Monday – Think ATC challenge was “Zentangle.”

I know what Zentangle is, and I started out trying to make one, but in the end, this became more like a spirograph piece, hence my name "Spirotangle." I used Gimp's Spyrogimp and Gfig filters to make parts of this.
