The Dogwood at Weaver Castle

The dogwood at Weaver Castle was turning from tender green 
to glowing white last week on Lauderdale Street. The Gothic residence
 was built by William Weaver in 1868 and is said to be inspired
 from a castle on the Rhine River 

The house's bricks were made from an on-site kiln, and its magnificent
 woodwork and flooring are from trees cut in Weaver's Grove.
 Weaver Castle has been undergoing extensive renovation
 for the past several years and is privately owned.

I really like the blue trim against the brick. Nicely captured image. Have a blessed day.

The architecture appeals to me. I imagine dogwood is quite rare in these parts, if it even can manage up in this climate.
