Tulip (variety unknown)
Dogwood (downtown Ashland)
See the tiny flowers in the center? Those are the actual blooms, and the pink outer parts are bracts, not flowers. A bract is a specialized leaf. In this case, it is different than the foliage leaves of the dogwood. They are often different in color, shape or texture than the foliage leaves as well as from the flower parts. Dogwood bracts are large and brightly colored; they surround the smaller, less colorful flowers; and they help to attract pollinators to the flowers.
