Dogwood blooms cut to grace a pure white mantle
conjure up images of spring come to the South. The tonal scheme,
all in coolest shades of bluish whites and grays are reflected
in the mirror of the silver vessel. It is all balance and light:
the elegant turn of the handles, the perfect symmetry of the
quadruple bracts of the dogwood. Even the tight little flowers
at the blooms centers are still closed, still green, still
fresh. White may well be the signature color of the Old South.
The white mantle rests against the white wall inside the large
white plantation home. Dogwoods bloom white as the heralds of
spring. Soon, the countryside will explode into floral extravagance.
But for now, it is cool, it is spring, it is pure, it is white.
