Thanks, I really like taking and messing with pictures.

After I saw the spots on my dogwood I read about it a little on the
internet.  They say it is killing lots of dogwoods in the east.  In one
survey of some Federal land in Maryland (the area where Camp David is) they
found something like 80% of the dogwoods have died, and all the rest have
anthracnose.  They know it's caused by a fungus, but they don't know why it
is suddenly killing so many trees.
