The flowers are just coming out on the Dogwood. Dogwood is a deciduous shrub that grows to around 4m tall. It has purplish-red twigs and pointed oval leaves that are wider at the base. The leaves are untoothed and slightly downy on both sides. The 3 - 5 main leaf veins curve round towards the leaf apex. It produces many creamy white small flowers with four tiny sepals snd four petals and produces black globular fruits. It grows in woods and on scrub.
