Seeing and having many of Phil's and Danny's wonderful trees made me decide to try to make my own. While I was on vacation I kept seeing these beautiful flowering dogwood trees everywhere. There were some white, purple and pink flowering trees every where I looked. This is what I came up with. Let me know what you think.

Thanks Kelsey. I still need to do some painting on the trunk and a few touchups, but I was very happy with the results.

That tree is SO beautyful, Amy cheers
How on earth did you make all those tiny, little flowers ? It must have taken ages to make Shocked

We don`t have that kind of tree here, it is probably too cold.
I just googeled pictures, - it seems there are many kinds of them. I will have to try if there may be one that can grow here drunken

It is fantastic when we are able of making our animals and plants! So fantastic that I'll never try! Laughing
The result is wonderful and I also googled a little and it looks that's a tree from Eastern USA, isn't it? So it would be nice to see it with some skunks and these kind of lovely animals from US Fauna! Laughing

Thanks everyone. I am really happy y'all like the tree. I am having fun making my own trees. I have several more bases done, just waiting to clay them and then add the foliage. I think dogwoods are beautiful trees and I really enjoyed making this one. I plan on making some other flowering trees in yellow and pink. I will add pictures when I finish them.
