Yosemite Dogwoods Starting to Bloom 4/8/15 – updated

Michael Frye reported on the beginning of dogwood bloom at Yosemite:

rumors of dogwoods blooming turned out to be true. I found one particularly full dogwood along the Merced River, and was able to photograph it during a break between rain squalls.

Most of the dogwood blossoms in the west end of the valley around Pohono Bridge, Fern Spring, and Valley View were still in that green stage, but there were a few trees in full bloom, with white blossoms. I didn’t make it to the eastern end of the valley, so it’s possible that some dogwoods there are further along, especially in sunnier areas like near the Ahwahnee Hotel. This dogwood bloom is about two to three weeks earlier than usual. But, like the redbuds, which also bloomed early this year, the dogwoods seem to be progressing slowly, so they may last awhile.
