And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day" (Genesis 1:31)
(Flowering Dogwood - 04) The flower of the flowering dogwood is the small green cluster in the center of the four bracts, which appear to be the flower's petals. Bracts are the protective covering of the buds. They open and fold away when the flower blooms. Some of the bracts have pink tips, as can be seen in this picture.
